College Tuition Reimbursement for Volunteer EMS or Fire Personnel

Attention East Ramapo high school students and recent grads!

Did you know that the County of Rockland has two Tuition Reimbursement Programs for volunteers of a Rockland County Fire Department or EMS Agency who are attending college?

The EDGES program can wave tuition at Rockland Community College for qualifying students with six months of service.

The HERRO program can reimburse tuition at colleges other than RCC for qualifying students with one year of service. Qualifying students can be reimbursed up to $3,000 a semester, up to $6,000 a year.

For any of our recent grads who have been a volunteer for Fire or EMS, don't miss out on these resources! For our students still in high school, consider how volunteering for Fire or EMS could be part of your college plan!
