It is hard to imagine the scene of a bad car accident, natural disaster or medical crisis at home without an ambulance in the picture. Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics have become a vital part of both our public safety and health care systems. Responding to emergencies, administering care and saving lives is exciting. It also is difficult and stressful. But this demanding profession is always in demand, especially in cities and private ambulance services. Volunteer State Community College offers training for entry-level EMTs as well as paramedics.
