When Emergency Strikes, EMTs Respond

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) play a critical role in public health and safety. They are the first to respond to almost all medical emergencies—from heart attacks, strokes, and seizures, to car crashes, building fires, and gunshot wounds. EMTs provide rapid, life-saving medical care to patients at the scene and then transport them to the hospital via ambulance as quickly as possible.

The role of an EMT is demanding, complicated, and stressful, but performed with courage and dedication. The work environment can be daunting, even dangerous. The decisions EMTs make can be life-and-death. Therefore, speed and accuracy are essential, and every call can present unique challenges. That’s why EMTs must receive thorough training in the current tools, techniques, and best practices of EMT care.
