Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.
- EMR candidates are not required to be 18 years of age or older
- If the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) completed an initial educational program more than two years ago, and the candidate is currently state licensed at the EMR level, the candidate must document successful completion of a state-approved EMR refresher course or 12 hours of equivalent continuing education topic hours within the past two years.
- If the candidate is not currently state licensed as an EMR and it has been more than two years from the completion of an approved EMR course, the candidate must complete a new state-approved EMR course prior to applying for National Certification.
