What are emergency medical technicians?

Medical response technicians are a crucial part of the health care environment. They provide immediate, out-of-hospital care to patients. They administer a range of services before a patient arrives at a medical facility, which we will discuss in further detail below. Additionally, they may also assist higher-level personnel at the scene of an emergency or accident and provide vital support during the transportation of patients.

Our medical response technicians generally work in teams, with one person driving the vehicle while the other administers life-saving emergency care. Technicians conduct fundamental interventions with the same equipment typically found in an ambulance.

Further, medical response technicians are the indispensable link between a patient and a medical facility. Without emergency medical responders, there would be fewer lives saved. Our technicians are on the front line of healthcare, handling a wide variety of situations.
