Learn how Ridge EMS helps the Greater Chicago Area

Ridge Ambulance Dispatch feels like the heart of the company. Every aspect of EMS seeps into our day-to-day tasks. Dispatching can be intense and stressful, but the Ridge family has your back. We're your first check-in and last check-out of the day so I feel like I know a little bit about everyone that walks through our doors. Ridge Dispatch is a great opportunity to further your knowledge of not only EMS dispatching, but also the overall workings of private EMS. It's a position one could make a career out of or use as a steppingstone into other medical pursuits.

- Toni (Dispatcher)

Ridge ambulance is a company that is big enough to have safe stable employment and small enough to not feel lost in its bureaucracy. Ridge is a diverse and non judgemental workplace. I've worked at companies where it felt like an adversarial atmosphere among peers and management, where I felt like I was under a microscope constantly. At Ridge I am respected and given the freedom and support able to develop professionally. Ridge appreciates my dedication and commitment and has reciprocated that commitment when home life has taken priority.
