Emergency Medical Responders are also commonly known as Certified First Responders. Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.
Timpson Volunteer Ambulance Service is a state approved provider and recognized for classroom instruction of the Emergency Medical Responder course that prepares candidates to take the NREMT cognitive exam which, upon successfully passing, allows the candidate to become licensed through the Texas Department of State Health Services.
