Emergency Medical Responder

Hennepin EMS EMRs have successfully completed education through an accredited institution and hold licensure in the State of Minnesota through the EMS Regulatory Board (EMSRB) at the EMR level, or higher. Most of our EMRs are also educated in other public safety fields, such as firefighting or law enforcement.

The onboarding process for a new paramedic includes:

  • Candidate completes an online application
  • Candidate completes an interview
  • Candidate completes a background check, psych evaluation, and physical agility test

New-hire EMRs are provided on-the-job didactic and hands-on training to perform the functions of our Emergency Medical Response Team as part of the Special Operations Division of Hennepin EMS. This team provides medical coverage at many large professional sporting events, concerts, and community gatherings. This team is the medical provider to patrons of US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
