Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)

The 2016 Emergency Medical Responder class ended in December 2016.  If was no EMR class offered in 2017.

Emergency Medical Responder is recognized by the State of California as the basic level of training needed by those charged with the initial response to medical emergencies. The care provided by the first medical responder is a high-quality first aid, including the administration of oxygen, CPR, automatic-defibrillation, wound management, splinting, and more. This is the first step in becoming a trained Emergency Medical Technician. First Medical Responders provide the immediate medical care needed to support the life of a sick or injured person until the arrival of the ambulance.
