The Echo Hose Difference

EMS companies know that we graduate the best in the business. EMS is a job that requires skill and expertise; you’re responsible for peoples’ lives. We want you to be able to hit the ground running and that’s what we prepare you for - success.


Our EMS classes are the most affordable in the region.


We know it takes many hands and hearts to solve the complex issues communities face, and we try to do our part.  We provide emergency ambulance service to over 5,300 emergency calls each year,  provide free community training programs to hundreds of citizens, collect food for the local pantries, collect toys for children during the holidays and we partner with over twenty Not-For-Profits providing them with free training space for meetings, trainings and community programming.
