Which Job Is Right For You?
Ambulance drivers generally work for hospitals and private ambulance companies transporting ill, injured, and non-ambulatory patients. Drivers help with unloading and loading patients from the vehicle and could be asked to administer first aid. Between patient transfers, ambulance drivers may help with responsibilities at the medical facility that they are assigned.
Ambulance drivers must be able to navigate roads safely and quickly, without endangering the patient being transported or the public. Drivers must be sure that the vehicle is adequately maintained, fueled, cleaned, and always stocked with medical supplies.
