When I was really sick a few years ago, I had the unfortunate need to be taken to the hospital by ambulance on a number of occasions. One of them was a real scare. I don’t remember much of that time, but the other times I do remember how kind and caring the EMT’s were.
I would feel foolish needing to call them but when they would come to get me and knew what my medical conditions were they made me feel that it was a smart thing that they were called. They understood the need for emergency care. They put me at ease and took care of me right away.
Their professionalism along with their kindness made me proud of the work they do and the extensive emergency first responder training they go through.
National Paramedic Institute provides online classes for EMT’s, First Responders and Paramedics. There are classes that can be used toward Continuing Eduction (CE) credits. There is a live demo of the video that is used for the courses. I’d feel confident knowing that if I needed an EMT again (I pray that I don’t) and they were trained by NPI they’d know their stuff.
