CJ497 First Responders

The role of a first responder is a special one. While the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system is comprised of a talented team of many individuals at different certification levels, the First Responder is the one who arrives on the scene of an emergency first. This is a unique responsibility, one for which specialized training is required. In addition to providing information about emergency care for the First Responder, this course will also discuss issues about staying safe while at the scene of an emergency.
