The Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course is an entry-level emergency medical provider course that will prepare individuals to handle medical emergencies. Treatment provided by Emergency Medical Responders can often mean the difference between life and death because it is delivered before more advanced emergency care is able to arrive. As such, they are a vital part of the emergency medical services system.
The Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course emphasizes the development of student skills in patient assessment and examination, recognition of signs and symptoms regarding illness or injury, and proper procedures when rendering basic emergency care.
Upon successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the overall role and responsibilities of an Emergency Medical Responder in performing both emergency medical care and operational aspects of the profession.
This course correlates class time with the ongoing EMT class on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
