[ARCHIVED] Emergency Management Medical Responder Class

The Course will be held at the Emergency Services Building located at 703 2nd Street West, Hampton. The Course is FREE due to grant funding. Without grant funding the class would cost $750.00 per person. The Emergency Medical Responder Class takes the place of the First Responder Program. An Emergency Medical Responder is a person who is specially trained to provide out-of-hospital care in medical emergencies. There are many different types of emergency medical responders, each with different levels of training ranging from first-aid to basic life support. Emergency Medical Responders have a very limited scope of practice and have the least amount of comprehensive education, clinical experience or clinical skills. The Emergency Medical Responder is not meant to replace the roles of Emergency Medical Technicians, Emergency Medical Technologists or Paramedics and their wide range of specialties. Emergency Medical Responders typically assist in rural regions providing basic life support where pre-hospital health professionals are not available due to limited resources or infrastructure.
