We Prepare Staten Island, NY’s Future Emergency Medical Technicians

Good help is hard to find, especially regarding reliable workers in a crisis. You want your emergency medical technicians in Staten Island, NY, to be trained and prepared when an emergency happens. That’s why the Training Institute for Medical Emergencies and Rescue (TIMER) provides comprehensive EMT training. For more than 39 years, we’ve been striving to ensure all of the professionals going into this field are ready for whatever it brings.

We started as a small group of Regional Emergency Medical Services Council (RESMCO) teachers founded by Monte Posner in 1980. When New York began its official instructor curriculum, we evolved into an EMS courses organization with knowledgeable instructors. With that change, we retained some of our long-term staff and gained some new trainers too.

Our History

Just 6 years after founding TIMER, Monte Posner became the Executive Director and was granted Authorized Sponsor Status by the New York State Department of Health. Our senior REMSCO instructors were grandfathered in as state instructors, and TIMER began teaching EMT and CPR courses on its own. From 1989 to 2004, we worked at the St. Vincent’s Catholic Medical Center’s Bayley Seton Hospital Campus. As our faculty grew, we taught other topics in emergency medicine and pre-hospital care.

Today we operate out of the Oakwood Heights Community Church, teaching an array of classes and conducting NYS certification exams. Reach out now to become a certified EMT and learn more about our EMT training programs.

Our Staff has a wide and varied background and in addition to operating as NYS Certified EMT’s, Paramedics, and Military Corpsman.
We provide setup and evaluations for:

  • Disaster Drills
  • Clinical Evaluations
  • Haz-Mat Situations
  • Weapons of Mass Destruction Scenarios
