Amber MacMillan has been involved in emergency medicine for nearly a decade. She took her EMT course after graduating high school and has been in the field ever since. Amber has been with Canandaigua Emergency Squad since the beginning of 2017 as a volunteer; however, starting this month, she’ll serve as per diem EMT.

“Emergency medicine has always been in my blood. My dad was a medic and the Chief of North Rose Fire Department in my hometown, so my brother and I were always around the fire house.”

While there are many reasons to like EMS, Amber cites her love of helping others as the root of passion. Even with the ups and downs of EMS, she prefers the fast pace and steady workflow of the environment.
