Course Description:

The Emergency Medical Responder is an integral part of the Emergency Medical Services System. This program provides the “first responder” with life saving techniques that can positively impact the outcome of a medical emergency in the workplace, not to mention it will satisfy OSHA requirements. It is the goal of the Emergency Medical Responder Program to provide each student with core knowledge, skill and attitude to function in the capacity of an Emergency Medical Responder. The Emergency Medical Responder uses a limited amount of equipment to perform initial assessment/intervention and is trained to assist advanced EMS providers. This level of provider is not intended to be utilized as ambulance minimum staff. Enrichment programs and continuing education will help fulfill other specific needs for the Emergency Medical Responder. It is recognized that there may be additional, specific education that will be required of Emergency Medical Responders who operate in the ERT/Fire Brigade setting.

Students participating in this program will be educated in First-aid, CPR, AED, emergency oxygen, cervical spine packaging, patient/vital sign assessment, and documentation. The program utilizes class room instruction and small group; real life scenario based teaching stations. The teaching stations provide a low student to instructor ratio and allows for hands on training.
