    Emergency Medical Technicians provide out of hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMTs have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life threatening emergencies. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. Emergency Medical Technicians are a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system.

    NOTE: This a National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians certification program. After candidates complete this approved EMS education program, and they meet eligibility requirements, candidates are required to demonstrate entry level competency on both cognitive and psychomotor examinations. (Separate Testing Fee)

    This  course will focus on vehicle features that the Emergency Vehicle Driver should know. The course will define the various types of Emergency Vehicle Inspections and maintenance programs a department must have set-up. The course will also focus on the different weight distribution factors and center of gravity when driving these emergency vehicles.

    It will focus on how to prevent Emergency Vehicle Roll Over and Vehicle Dynamics and Physical Forces effect the operation of these types of vehicles.

    It also includes how to prepare for unexpected situations and conditions which can adversely affect emergency vehicle operation. As well as defensive driving techniques that include space management, following distance and rate of closure, hazard identification and correct braking techniques to name a few tactical skills.
