Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
Boles Fire Protection District hosts an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training program. Each year approximately 20 students attend and are qualified to take the National Registration of Emergency Medical Technician Exam. Successful completion of the exam qualifies them to work as an EMT in the field.
An EMT responds to emergency calls and performs actions within the protocols of the District they are working for. They can work on an ambulance or at a fire station. They can also work in hospitals as technicians. The training includes both classroom and hands on experience in the field. Some interventions an EMT can perform include cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), defibrillation, bleeding control, shock treatment, immobilization, splinting and medical emergencies. Each student is required to complete several hours at a professional ambulance service. After completion of the class, the student will test for National Registry. Completion of the class does not guarantee the student will receive National Certification.
