For anyone looking to start or grow their EMS career in South Carolina, there is a new bookmark-worthy website that provides job listings and training information from across the state. The S.C. EMS Portal is a free online resource launched by S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Bureau of Emergency Medical Services and the EMS Performance Improvement Center (EMS PIC).
The EMS Portal provides career-related curated content that is submitted by South Carolina EMS agencies and education providers. It provides a searchable database that helps connect professionals with job and training opportunities in their area. Users can search by region, county and certification level to find opportunities that fit their needs.
The page also provides a library of job-related documents such as advisories, protocol updates and memos to help improve communication across the EMS community. In addition to better serving the EMS community, the new portal has also improved efficiency for the Bureau of EMS – reducing phone calls and emails asking for information found on the portal by more than 50 percent.
Thank you to our partners at EMS PIC who helped build this valuable new resource to serve the EMS community.
