The EMT Oath
Be it pledged as an Emergency Medical Technician, I will honor the physical and judicial laws of
God and man. I will follow that regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider
for the benefit of patients and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, nor shall I
suggest any such counsel. Into whatever homes I enter, I will go into them for the benefit of
only the sick and injured, never revealing what I see or hear in the lives of men unless required
by law.
I shall also share my medical knowledge with those who may benefit from what I have learned.
I will serve unselfishly and continuously in order to help make a better world for all mankind.
While I continue to keep this oath unviolated, may it be granted to me to enjoy life, and the
practice of the art, respected by all men, in all times. Should I trespass or violate this oath,
may the reverse be my lot.
So help me God.

The Malta & McConnelsville Fire Department established it's Emergency Care
Service in the 1930's with very minimal equipment and training. Training
consisted of basic first aid. The 1960's brought new stringent regulations
governing emergency care. In the late 60's and early 70's state and federal
regulations forced the funeral homes to discontinue ambulance runs, the
county commissioners contracted a private ambulance firm from outside the
county, but this service proved to be unsatisfactory.

The
meaning of
the
"Star of
Life"
In December 1972 the fire department created the EMS division to provide this service to
the citizens of Morgan County. The department responded with more training and
purchased equipment to meet these challenges of saving lives and continues today to
provide this training and equipment.
Today the advanced life support vehicles coupled with the dedicated professional
paramedics, intermediates, and basics respond to this challenge.

The challenge of saving lives.
