Emergency Medical Responder Hybrid Course
EMR / First Responder
The EMR (Emergency Medical Responder) is a vital part of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system. The EMR is trained to get there first-the point when a difference can be made between life and death.
The training which you are about to undergo is focused on just that. You will receive the knowledge and skills to save a life, as well as the skills to comfort a patient at the height of the crisis. You will be able to provide care that flows seamlessly into the care given by emergency personnel on the ambulance.
