EMR: Emergency Medical Responder

Medical Responders are usually the first ones to respond and care for patients. They have more skill than someone who is trained in basic first aid but they are not a substitute for advanced medical care rendered by emergency medical technicians (EMTs). First responder courses cover cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator usage, spinal and bone fracture immobilization, oxygen and, emergency childbirth as well as advanced first aid. Initial classes are offered through area Fire Departments and industries on an as needed basis. This course meets requirements for the NCOEMS and upon successful completion of the class, the student is eligible to sit for the NC Medical Responder exam.
