Course Description

EMS.1110 - Emergency Medical Responder (2)
Provides students with a foundation in emergency medical care for those who are apt to be the first persons responding to an emergency. In defining course scope and emphasis, it was decided that students should possess the same knowledge of patient care as an EMT, but not the same equipment and level of skills. While emergency care is not likely to be the EMRs primary responsibility in the community, this individual can play an active role in the communities┐ emergency medical services system. As the first person at the emergency scene, the EMR must be completely knowledgeable about basic principles of emergency medical care; and must know what should, as well as what should not be done. The Emergency Medical Responder course follows the American Heart Association┐s BLS CPR for Healthcare Provider standards and meets the curriculum requirements set by the EMS Regulatory Board, National Registry and DOT standards.
