EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN (EMT)
This is the next level of certification for the emergency medical system for pre-hospital care. The primary focus of an EMT is to provide basic emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response team that operates under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform life saving interventions with the basic life support equipment typically found on an ambulance. Emergency Medical Technicians are called upon to assist Advanced EMTs and Paramedics with ALS procedures.
