SPRING AND SUMMER 2022

EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN (EMT)

AND

EMERGENCY MEDICAL RESPONDER (EMR)

HYBRID COURSES

Our goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy.  Hopefully by implementing some of these safety measures, we can continue our journey on becoming an EMR or EMT.

The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) AND Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) courses are designed for anyone interested in learning more about the emergency response system and in becoming an Emergency Medical Technician or Emergency Medical Responder.  Emergency Responders are the first line of treatment providing vital care to the sick and injured which can be critical to patient survival.   

These courses are will help provide you with the tools and training needed in becoming certified as an EMR or  EMT.  During the course you will be taught life support skills including assessment of patient condition, airway management, treatment of bleeding control, shock recognition and hands-on training. The program is a combination of classroom instruction, skill (hands-on in person) training and clinical observation/ride.  This initial Emergency Responder  program is an entry level course of over 160 hours and Easton EMS is honored to be able to offer this on-line program under the current State of CT and CDC guidelines due to COVID-19.

Which course do you choose?  What is the difference between an EMR and EMT?

EMTs a required by State standards to complete 160 hours of training where an EMR is required to complete 80 hours of training.  An  EMR (Emergency Medical Responder) was established to provide basic first aid treatment for emergencies and injuries by the first arriving responders, typically firefighters and police officers.

As the EMR roll has evolved, EMRs now consist of students who want to become active in the Emergency Medical System and are not quite old enough for EMT or choose to maintain a level of a basic first aid.  The EMR level can render first aid care to individuals that become ill or injured at work until EMTs can arrive. An EMR usually does not transport patients to the hospital. EMTs have more advanced skills, are able to administer additional emergency medications, and are trained in the transport, stabilization, and ongoing assessment of patients.

Easton EMS typically have crew members that are EMT and EMR levels.  State of CT requires at least one EMT be in the patient care compartment during transport.

Please find further description and requirements for each certification below.
