EMTs SAVE LIVES

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) are prehospital healthcare professionals involved in the assessment, treatment, and transportation of the sick and injured. The education and training for EMTs allows them to work as part of a team to

-Respond to 911 calls for emergency medical assistance, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or bandaging a wound
-Assess a patient’s condition and determine a course of treatment
-Provide first-aid treatment or life support care to sick or injured patients
-Transport patients safely in an ambulance
-Transfer patients to the emergency department of a hospital or other healthcare facility
-Report their observations and treatment to physicians, nurses, or other healthcare facility staff
-Document medical care given to patients
-Inventory, replace, and clean supplies and equipment after use

EMTs are needed in a variety of healthcare settings from ambulance services and fire departments to industrial and off-shore operations. The career outlook for EMTs is bright as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the profession will grow 6% over the next 10 years.

The Alabama Department of Public Health, in addition to many other state health departments, licenses EMTs who have successfully completed an approved EMT course and earned their National Registry of EMT (NREMT) license.
