The Harris County Emergency Corps strives to provide quality educational opportunities that will further the mission of the service. Furthermore, in an effort to promote community-based support, strengthen interagency alliances, and foster a solid recruiting base, HCEC has developed the HCEC Observer Program. This program allows the participant an opportunity to learn more about HCEC and the exciting world of pre-hospital emergency care.
Philosophy – The HCEC Observer Program provides a quality educational experience for the participant. Candidates for the program should at a minimum meet one of the following criteria:
To schedule an observer shift complete the OBSERVER-Waiver form and “Observer Confidentiality Form” along with a copy of your drivers license or photo ID and email the forms to HR@hcec.com. Our “In-Charge Medics” are responsible for the shift in which you are assigned and will answer any questions you may have during your shift. We ask that you follow their orders as this will keep you as safe as possible during your visit. Please make sure you understand the Observer Release Form in its entirety. The shift that you schedule has many risks associated with being an observer, including but not limited to: motor vehicle accidents, violence, and the possible transmission of diseases.
All information that you encounter as it pertains to patients and emergency calls are strictly confidential in nature and are not to be discussed outside our organization.
