Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
Boles Fire Protection District will host an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training program. Space is limited to approximately 20 students per class and upon successful completion students are qualified to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician’s practical exam. Successful completion of the practical exam will then qualify a student to sit for the written exam. Once completed a Missouri license is applied for which opens the opportunity to work as an EMT in the field.
An EMT responds to emergency calls and performs actions within the protocols of the District they are working for. They can work on an ambulance or at a fire station. They can also work in hospitals as technicians. The training includes both classroom and hands on experience in the field. Some interventions an EMT can perform include cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), defibrillation, bleeding control, shock treatment, immobilization, splinting and medical emergencies.
Each student is required to complete several hours at a professional ambulance service under the supervision of a licensed provider. After completion of the class, the student will test for National Registry. Successful completion of the class does not guarantee the student will receive National Certification.
