A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN (EMT)
As an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), you are the lifeblood of our company. You have the opportunity to respond to emergency and non-emergency calls 24 hours per day. As an emergency responder, you do whatever it takes to get there.
You drive a variety of emergency vehicles in all road conditions, including inclement weather, dense traffic, and rural off-road settings. In order to respond efficiently and safely, you follow GPS, read map books, and follow written or verbal directions, staying in close communication with dispatchers, EMS crews, first responders, and others. You are conscientious about following all departmental, local, and state driving rules.
Upon arrival, you help provide direct patient care according to your competencies and per the Medical Director’s authorization and protocols. You are often required to lift, carry, transport, and extricate patients, in some cases without assistance.
Always professional, you interact respectfully with multiple outside agencies such as police departments, fire departments, and first responder organizations as well as provide excellent customer service to patients, victims, and the general public. You complete accurate and detailed patient care reports, billing information, and all other associated documentation in a timely manner.
Responding quickly requires preparedness, so you maintain vehicles and equipment in a constant state of readiness. You complete daily vehicle and supply checklists, assisting with vehicle re-supply, vehicle and equipment decontamination, and general readiness-related tasks.
If any discrepancies with vehicles, supplies, or equipment are found, you immediately file a written report. Always happy to help, you also assist with general housekeeping chores and other special projects. You get great satisfaction out of serving those in need and are excited to continue on your journey to becoming a paramedic!
