The BAY EMT Program was created in 2002 in Oakland California. The program was originally designed to teach the EMT curriculum to Oakland high school students. Our current recruitment efforts have expanded to include young adults from the inner-cities of all neighboring bay area communities.
BAY EMT created a fire science technology division to assist those students who are looking to pursue a career in the fire service. The Fire Academy graduated its first class of cadets in May 2013.
The concept for BAY EMT was envisioned while the two founders were attending the Carl Holmes Executive Development Institute (EDI), a chief officer training program for firefighters. The idea sprang to life after attending a lecture on community based education. Planning for the program was formulated while in attendance at EDI and first BAY EMT session was held 6 months later. The current BAY EMT staff consists of four EDI graduates with one staff member currently in attendance.
EDI has a motto which embodies all that BAY EMT stands for.
"All that I am...I owe...I live eternally in the red."
