The Training Institute for Medical Emergencies and Rescue

Timer was started in 1980 by Monte Posner as a loosely knit group of REMSCO Instructors before NYS started its official instructor curculum. Some taught on Staten Island, while others taught in southern Brooklyn.

As the kinks were worked out of the system, a group of knowledgeable senior instructors emerged known as TIMER. During the next six years, there was an influx of EMT’s who tried their hand at teaching. Some of the long-term instructors that started out with us in 1980 left to follow other paths.

In 1986 that all changed. TIMER, now with Monte as Executive Director, was granted Authorized Sponsor Status by the NYS DOH, BEMS. As Senior REMSCO Instructors were grandfathered in as State Instructors, TIMER began teaching NYS EMT Courses in Brooklyn on its own.

In 1989 – 1990, the school moved to Staten Island at The St. Vincents Catholic Medical Centers, Bayley Seton Hospital Campus. With Monte now a NYS DOH Regional Faculty member, a knowledgeable cadre of instructors were built, and TIMER branched out teaching other topics in emergency medicine and pre-hospital care.

We remained at Bayley Seton Hospital until its planned closing in 2004. In January of ’04, the Institute moved to South Beach Psychiatric Center. Starting in September 2016 we will commence operations at our new location at OAKWOOD HEIGHTS COMMUNITY CHURCH 345 Guyon Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306 in the old Oakwood Heights Nursery School Building.

Our Staff has a wide and varied background and in addition to operating as NYS Certified EMT’s, Paramedics, and Military Corpsman.

  • Disaster Drills
