It is the practice of White Lake Ambulance Authority to select and promote employees on the basis of their qualifications, without regard to national origin, age, race, sex, color, religion, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, marital or veteran status, physical or mental disabilities or any other legally protected basis.
White Lake Ambulance Authority believes that in order for it to be successful, its employees must be successful. As part of that belief, White Lake Ambulance Authority places an emphasis on the good physical and mental health of our employees.
To this end, White Lake Ambulance Authority has committed to maintaining a drug-free workplace. As part of maintaining a drug-free workplace, every individual offered employment with White Lake Ambulance Authority is required to successfully pass a pre-employment drug screen and physical examination prior to the beginning of employment.
The treatment and transport of patients in the hospital and out of the hospital environment poses serious physical demands on workers in the ambulance industry. Unassisted two-person crews regularly are required to lift and carry incapacitated adults weighing more than 200 pounds, using an 80-pound gurney. Routine obstacles such as curbs, stairs, and narrow hallways can prevent the gurney from being rolled, thus requiring the ambulance crew to lift the entire weight of the patient and equipment. Furthermore, normal body weight distribution means that the worker at the patient’s head often carries 55-60% of the combined patient/equipment weight.
To reduce the risk of injuries to its employees and patients, White Lake Ambulance Authority has designed a post-offer physical performance test. This test is directly derived from EMT job functions that EMTs must perform when lifting and moving a 200-pound patient. This test, using specialized equipment is administered under the direct supervision of a Licensed Physical Therapist and is an accurate simulation of the flexibility, strength, and endurance required to work on an ambulance.
