Staff & Responsibilities

Rittman EMS is a municipal third-service Emergency Medical Service that provides prompt and professional medical care to the community. Comprised of a full-time EMS Chief, the remaining staff consists of highly dedicated volunteers who provide 24-hour emergency response to the City of Rittman and portions of Milton Township, Ohio. Rittman EMS responds to an average of 1,000 calls for service each year.

In order to meet the growing demand for a response, Rittman EMS staffs two part-time members (generally 1-ALS / 1-BLS) between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. The remaining hours are covered by an on-call duty crew who respond from their homes and are required to remain in the response area while on duty. Volunteer members are compensated for their time, on a paid-per-call basis. Our part-time staff is hired from our volunteers.


Persons interested in joining the Rittman EMS Family should fill out an application, and return it to the EMS Chief. Resumes are encouraged to be submitted along with the application packet but are not accepted in lieu of the employment application. Download the Rittman EMS Application (PDF) or pick a copy up at:
