Course Description

Emergency Medical Service (EMS) responses by Fire Departments are on the rise.  In fact, many fire service organizations respond to more EMS calls annually than any other type of emergency.  Even if the organization does not operate ambulance units, its personnel often serve as medical first responders to provide treatment until an ambulance arrives.  No matter the scope of practice or certification level, firefighters must ensure that they are proficient in emergency first aid to be able to assist the public as well as their fellow firefighter.  This course offers 2 CE hours covering program development, delivery, as well as: fire and life safety codes, education, and presentations.  This course offers an interactive practice session and a module quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting 7th edition.  This course satisfies: NFPA 1001 6.1.1, 6.1.2, 6.2.1
