What is an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)?


The primary focus of the EMT is to provide basic medical care and transportation for emergency and non- emergency patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual possesses the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation, and functions as part of a comprehensive EMS response under medical oversight. An EMT performs interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance and is a link from the scene to the emergency health care system.
