Medical First Responders are individuals who have obtained certification in the treatment of medical emergencies and have completed vital training in pre-hospital care. Successful trainees must develop the necessary skills to react quickly and safely in emergency situations. Though not possessing the same abilities as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) who undergoes a more extensive training program in medical emergencies, Medical First Responders experience exceptional training in many key areas that are crucial for the immediate initial response to an incident.
