A Week That Shapes the Future

Medical Information



The 100% volunteer staff of American Legion Jersey Boys State each session assembles a team of certified EMT's and other public safety professionals to staff ALJBS EMS. A central location for EMS services is established in one of the dormitories on the Rider University campus; however, the EMS staff additionally serve as Counselors in the cities around campus. City Counselors are the first point of contact and will refer cases to the ALJBS EMS staff as warranted. Additionally, the ALJBS Dean of Public Safety coordinates with Rider Public Safety and with local Lawrenceville, Lawrence Township and Capital Health EMS Services to coordinate care. For immediate medical attention, please dial 9-1-1. Should you require any type of medical attention, please inform your Counselor. Should an emergency arise, your Counselor is well briefed on procedures to follow to get you immediate aid.


Medical Form


Beginning in 2019, All Applicants will be required to complete an online electronic health record with CampDoc. In addition to being a HIPAA compliant electronic health record system, it will also be a valuable tool for our volunteer EMS team, allowing them to quickly access important medical information at the time they are administering care. This secure solution will be greatly beneficial and a marked improvement over the printed Medical Form we used in the past.

Applicants can begin their Medical Form by logging into apply.aljbs.org. Once their on-line application is complete they will see a link for "Medical Form" where they will directed to campdoc.com to begin the registration process. The one-time link that is provided will expire in 60 minutes. Please note: applicants will receive a weekly email from CampDoc until their profile is 100% complete!
