   ABOUT US:

-- EMT/paramedic duties include, but are not limited to: responding to 911 emergency assistance calls, administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation, treating major wounds with urgent care measures, providing other first-aid, operating an ambulance and safely transporting patience to hospitals or health facilities, reporting findings and observations to doctors and nurses at care centers, and more.

-- An EMT-Basic is able to assess a patient’s condition and to manage respiratory, cardiac and trauma emergencies.
-- EMT-Intermediate is able to complete the same tasks as an EMT-Basic as well as more advanced medical procedures, including administering intravenous fluids and some medications.
-- EMT-Paramedics provide more extensive prehospital care. In addition to the tasks of EMTs, paramedics can give medications orally and intravenously, interpret electrocardiograms (EKGs)—which monitor heart function—and use other monitors and complex equipment.

-- No two days in an EMT’s career are ever the same. Dispatch calls vary every day meaning you never know what can happen on the job from one minute to the next.
-- The 2015 annual median pay for EMTs and paramedics can be around $31,980, or $15.38 per hour.
-- To become an EMT or paramedic, you need a high school education and post-secondary non-degree award or certification.
-- The job outlook for this field between 2014 and 2024 is 24%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is a much faster rate of job growth than average for other fields.
-- The BLS estimates more than 58,000 changes in EMTs and paramedics' employment status over that same 10-year span.
-- The work environment for EMTs and paramedics is described as "physically strenuous and...stressful," considering the unexpected nature of each day's work and the likelihood of tending to life or death scenarios.
