The Heritage EMT - Basic program prepares graduates to be qualified to apply for employment with ambulance services and acute emergency facilities.
EMTs administer first aid or life support care to sick or injured persons in pre-hospital settings. They perform emergency treatment procedures such as airway management, heart monitoring, and spinal and extremity immobilization. They must exercise considerable judgment, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. During the pre-hospital treatment, they communicate with dispatchers and treatment center personnel in order to arrange reception of victims and receive instructions for further treatment. EMTs are trained to operate equipment, such as automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and bag valve mask resuscitators, in life support environments.
