Doc's Picture

Hi everybody and thank you for visiting our website.  We do appreciate your interest in our EMS System and want you to feel free to contact any of our EMS staff for further information or assistance.


We are very proud of our recently graduated 2016-2017 paramedic class.  The annual graduation ceremony at Morris Country Club was a fitting way to congratulate the students for a year of hard work.  We wish our paramedics the best of luck on the upcoming State Exam and in their future careers.  But, there is no rest for the wicked.  The new 2017-2018 paramedic class starts up in mid-August.  We look forward to another successful academic year.


For those of you who are not aware, lectures and practicals are now held on the Joliet Junior College campus.  Morris Hospital, our System agencies, and JJC work together to provide an excellent education for all of our students.  Our goal is not only to produce book-smart medics, but also to send out men and women who are competent to work on the streets.  


We would like to welcome Dan Carlascio to our already impressive education team.  Dan comes to us with over 30 years of EMS knowledge and experience.  He has given cardiology lectures to previous years' students and was so-well received.  We are happy he will be around on a more regular basis.


I would like to thank all the people who work so hard to make this EMS System a success:  from our EMS staff members to our preceptors and field paramedics to our first responders/basics/intermediates to the Chiefs and Coordinators........

a heart-felt thanks for all you do.
