The High Value of FD EMT’s


Fire Departments serve a critical role in the chain of survival. Whether it’s a cardiac arrest, an allergic reaction, life-threatening bleeding, or an opiate overdose, our first responders have more tools than ever to make a significant difference in the lives of those they serve. This brief training video was created to reinforce the important basic skills that will make a positive impact on patient care. Optimizing the use of Fire Department EMT’s for those calls in which their skills may make a difference, and reinforcing the importance of the team approach to patient care, is critical to the health and safety of our community and the impetus for this training video.      -Dr. Jeremy Cushman
