The Town conducts a background check on all potential employees, full time, part time, seasonal, temporary, and per diem. All employment offers are contingent upon completing a successful background check.
When positions become available within the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department, the Town conducts periodic recruitments in order to determine an eligibility list for full time and per diem job openings. The Town will provide notice of the recruitment the same way the Town advertises other job postings. Applicants for full time positions must have a valid RI Paramedic license at time of appointment. Applicants for Per Diem positions must have a valid RI Paramedic or EMT-Cardiac license at time of appointment. Along with the recruitment posting, the Town will post further detail regarding the recruitment and application process, which includes written, physical agility, and scenario-based assessments, as well as a thorough background check and pre-placement health screening.
When preparing for your interview, please feel free to peruse our website, reviewing the respective department pages, FAQs, the agendas and minutes for recent Town Council and other boards and commission meetings, and any other information shared within the site that is of interest to you. We also recommend reviewing recent publications, including the Town's most recent Annual Report, the most recent municipal budget, and any other Town documents of interest to you.
