What Is an EMT?
An EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) is a healthcare professional who is trained to provide medical care in the event of medical and/or traumatic emergencies in the pre-hospital setting. The highest skilled pre-hospital provider is the paramedic. Paramedics are licensed healthcare professionals who provide the most extensive pre-hospital advanced life support.
