Volunteer Information

1. How To Become A Member

Members of Hatzalah of Union County are all community volunteers. Members volunteer as either First Responders or Dispatchers. First Responders are required to complete an intensive course of study approved by the New Jersey State Department of Health and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT), and must pass the National Registry Examination. As with all Hatzalah organizations, members must be Shomrei Mitzvos, over the age of 18 years. Dispatchers may also elect, but are not required to complete a similar course of study.

If your application is approved, Hatzalah of Union County assumes responsibility for the all costs related to training and certification as an EMT. Upon successful completion of the course and passage of the National Registry Examination, new members will be provided with all necessary equipment and supplies.

If you are interested in volunteering your time in a capacity other than as a dispatcher or EMT, please email us at so we can discuss other opportunities with you.
