Cortlandt EMS encourages all members to participate in continuous education and training, and provides ongoing training conducted by certified instructors at its headquarters.

Many members have received certification in ‘out-of-the-box’ and advanced topics including hazardous materials, fire safety, pre-hospital trauma life support, EMS safety, taser injuries, and ice and water rescue.

Cortlandt EMS ambulances are staffed with New York State certified emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and trained driver/attendants.
