Emergency Medical Technician

In case of emergency

Injuries, trauma, sudden illness—medical emergencies can happen at any time, in any place. Survival often depends on the initial care the injured or severely ill person receives at the scene. If you are calm under pressure, compassionate, good at problem solving, and have the desire to help people in need, a career as an emergency medical technician (EMT) may be an excellent choice for you.
