Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)
with Carle EMS
Emergency Medical Responders (EMR) are individuals who have been trained to handle medical emergencies. These emergencies may range from an accident that happened in traffic, a highway accident or even a natural disaster. An EMR may need to perform basic life support in the form of CPR or other first aid to help stabilize a victim. An EMR could be a police officer, firefighter or anyone who requires supplemental medical training beyond standard first aid. An EMR does not replace EMTs. Rather the EMR may stabilize a person and keep them alive and calm to wait for the arrival of EMTs.
