Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are often the first to respond to an emergency medical incident. People’s lives often depend on the quick reactions and competent care of paramedics and EMTs. It’s a high-pace environment that is always changing, but offers diverse challenges and big rewards.
