Myerstown First Aid Unit is the largest volunteer EMS organization operating in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. We aim to provide excellent service and care to the residents and visitors of Myerstown Borough, Jackson Township, and the surrounding areas. With such high goals in mind, MFAU is always looking for active volunteers to be a part of our organization. Members must be a current certified prehospital provider with a current CPR certification. Our company is licensed up to the IALS (Intermediate Advanced Life Support) level, so we accept any level of certification (so long as those certified at the Paramedic level or higher are willing to operate at the AEMT level or lower).

MFAU strives to be as dedicated to its members as it is to its community. Members are provided with quality equipment and incredible opportunities to train, attend conferences, and advance in their skills overall so that the best possible care can be provided for our community.
EMS providers of any certification level are encouraged to fill out an application and drop it off at our location! These providers will then undergo an interview and acceptance process.
Once interviewed, new members will be announced at the monthly business meeting and will begin their six month probationary period during which they should acquaint themselves with the station, apparatus, and equipment.
Once the initial probationary period is completed, the member can be voted in as a full member or for their probationary period to be extended. Once a full member, voting privileges are granted.
During their volunteer time, new members should attempt to serve time with as many different providers as possible. These providers will report the competence of the new member to the line officers who will determine the member's eligibility to be a crew chief and earn additional benefits.
Members who are twenty-one years of age or older and hold a current EMSVO certification are eligible to drive MFAU's apparatus. Interested providers will enter the Driver Training Program (at the discretion of the line officers) and will be cleared to drive upon completion.
