The cadet program affords an opportunity for a younger person who has an interest in EMS to begin to lay the foundation for a rewarding future in emergency medical service. Under the guidance of experienced members they learn some of the basic skills necessary toward becoming an effective member of the rescue squad. Skills such as CPR, basic leadership and self discipline are learned in an environment which promotes inspiration interactive skills.

The cadet program not only benefits the individual cadets. It also develops individuals who grow with the organization and eventually assume the full responsibilities of an EMS provider and more importantly, improves our overall ability to provide the highest standard of emergency care to the community which we serve.

Please call MVRS at 301-884-2900 for more information.
