Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics respond to emergency calls, performing medical services and transporting patients to medical facilities.Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are on the front line of patient care. On any given day, they can be called to respond to life-threatening issues, such as cardiac arrests or major bleeding, to minor complaints, such as sore throats or sprained ankles.

Demand for trained health professionals such as these is on the rise. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that the need for EMTs and paramedics will grow by 15 percent by 2026 – that’s much faster than the average for all occupations.

St. Louis Community College is responding to this need by expanding its emergency medical services program to other locations, including the Wildwood campus.
