Observation Shifts


Anyone in the community can come observe what our volunteer crews do on a shift without the obligation of membership.  We will welcome you with open arms whether you would like to simply observe EMS, precept for an EMT-B course, or potentially join. We require each applicant to complete an observer shift with our agency prior to accepting your application. This gives you the opportunity to see what HRS is all about and decide if you are willing to make the serious commitment to improving the lives of those in our community. Please review all information on the observer form before the start of your observer shifts.
Our agency uses TimeTrade scheduling to allow people to sign up for an observer shift.  Links to schedule those shifts are below. Observer shifts are available all days of the week during the following times:
A Shift:  7:00am - 1:00pm      (Click to Schedule A Shift)
B Shift:  1:00pm – 7:00pm      (Click to Schedule B Shift)
C Shift:  7:00pm – 11:00pm.  (Click to Schedule C Shift)
Any questions or concerns you have may be directed via email to our membership committee at: membership@harrisonburgrescue.org.
