As crisis first-responders, EMTs and paramedics use their quick thinking and competent skills to provide life-saving, pre-hospital care in the field.

Students who purse an associate’s degree in Emergency Response and Operations can tailor their training to focus on one of four tracks: fire operations, paramedicine, emergency management or fire science.

The EMT degree and certificate courses teach basic patient assessment, treatment of medically or traumatically compromised patients, special hazards, and medical operations.

We also offer basic CPR courses for the general public, and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) and renewal CPR certification for health care professionals.
