Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) licensees are in a position of trust given that they respond to emergency situations in which adults and/or children may be incapacitated due to a sudden illness or accident. EMS/EMT licensees may have access to various prescription medications, including narcotics.
Those interested in pursuing an EMS/EMT career may want to request their own background check to make sure nothing in their criminal history would exclude them from obtaining a license in the future.
Among the EMS careers an individual may want to request a fingerprint-based background check for are:
The Illinois State Uniform Conviction Information Act (UCIA) fingerprint-based background check provides an opportunity for individuals or employers to obtain criminal history information on file with the State of Illinois. The response will contain all conviction data compiled and maintained by the Illinois State Police (ISP). An individual may grant permission to send the response to another individual or entity, such as an employer, by listing the individual party as the requestor. Results of this check are mailed directly to the individual or requesting agency by the ISP.
