Emergency Medical Response is a dynamic 56-hour course featuring lecture, video, simulated emergency situations, discussion and hands-on skill practice based on the national EMS curriculum requirements and educational standards. Whether responding to hurricanes, terrorist attacks, or hazmat spills, officials need the tools and information to establish command and control, coordinate communication, evacuate citizens, and execute clean-up operations to protect human and wildlife populations and natural resources.
Formerly known as First Responder this course is designed to teach the student the skills needed to sustain life and prevent further injury until advanced help arrives. While EMR personnel do not provide primary care to patients being transported by ambulance they may be asked to assist during the transport of critically injured or ill patients. This course is also often required by some industries for their safety and response personnel.
