The Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) provides out-of-hospital care in medical emergencies.
Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs) typically respond as a member of a Fire Department to assist on medical calls in their communities. EMRs provide basic medical care and life support in situations where EMTs or Paramedics are not immediately available.
Students who successfully complete the course will be qualified to take the state or national certification test for Emergency Medical Responder. Instructional time includes class work and hands-on lab skills necessary to provide emergency medical care. Successful students may choose to go on to complete the EMT Basic certification.
