This Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course provides the skills and knowledge to perform immediate lifesaving interventions to care for critical patients who access the emergency medical services system in the out-of-hospital setting. EMRs have the knowledge and skills within the scope of practice, necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.
