Our employees come to Glacier County for a variety of reasons, to enjoy the great outdoors on their days off, for the more relaxed work environment, for more progressive protocols and training. For whatever your reason, Glacier County EMS has a lot to offer it's employees. With the world-famous Glacier National Park less than an hour away and millions of acres of national forests a short drive down the road, our region has something to offer everyone in every season.
Cut Bank offers a low cost of living, affordable housing, great schools, and a relaxed, small-town atmosphere. When residents desire something that only "the city" can offer, Great Falls is just an easy interstate drive away. If you are looking for a job on a department where you have input in it's operations, work a great shift schedule, get to attend cutting-edge training, and come to work looking forward to your day, you are looking in the right place.

EMT's and First Responders (Paid-on-Call): Some of our EMT's and first responders are paid-on-call. Paid-on-call members have the flexibility of choosing their shifts, and are not required to be at the station for their shifts. As a paid-on-call member, you can stay at home, or even work another job, as long as you can respond to the station or to a scene within 8 minutes of a call. Paid-on-call members receive a base rate of pay for being on call for a shift, and receive a set amount per 911 call. While on inter-facility transfers, they are paid an hourly rate. THERE ARE NO FRINGE BENEFITS with a paid-on-call position. The pay rates for paid-on-call personnel are as follows:
Paramedics, EMT's, and First Responders (Full-Time): Staff who are hired full-time receive respectable pay, a full county benefits package, and are enrolled in the Montana Public Employees Retirement System. With progressive protocols, a relaxed work environment, flexible schedules, and top-of-the-line equipment, GCEMS is a great place for both new and veteran responders to work. Full-time staff work 3-24 hour shifts a week, which allows for ample time off. We staff the station 24 hours a day in 12 hour shifts, and are then allowed to leave the station and go to "on-call" status for the remaining 12 hours of their 24 hour shift. The only requirement is that they remain within 8 minutes of the station during the "on-call" portion of their shift. Some of the other benefits our full-time staff enjoy include ample training opportunities, Montana Public Employees Retirement, numerous paid holidays, and paramedics have the opportunity to attend a critical care paramedic course paid for after one year of service on a case by case basis. All calls you go on while "on-call" are paid at overtime rate after 40 hours have been worked in a week. Starting paramedic wage: $16.00/hr.
*Annual income beyond base pay cannot be guaranteed due to unpredictability of overtime and how many holidays your shift will fall on.
Paramedics (Part-Time): We are always looking for part-time paramedics to fill in for vacancies from vacation, training, and sick leave. PT medics enjoy the same relaxed atmosphere and the progressive protocols the FT medics do, but do not receive fringe benefits. Part-time paramedics can be either part-time-regular or on a fill-in (PRN) only basis, depending on the needs of the department and the desires of the paramedic. Starting wage: $16.00/hr.
