What does an EMT do? Emergency medical technicians (EMT’s) work as a team and conduct basic, emergency interventions to help save lives and reduce harm at emergency scene. Using an ambulance and stretcher, with a partner, EMT’s also transport non-emergent patients from hospitals to long term care centers and home. Some of the skills EMT’s perform include: Performing CPR, using an AED, oxygen &glucose administration, extricate patients and prepare them for transport, help people who are having asthma attacks, allergic reactions or drug overdoses by administering lifesaving medications such as Epinephrine & Narcan. Being an EMT is a rewarding job and there is plenty of room to grow!
