Who are Paramedics?

Paramedics function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Paramedics perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment typically found on an ambulance. The Paramedic is a link from the scene into the health care system. A Paramedic possesses the complex knowledge and skills necessary to provide compassionate, comprehensive advanced patient care and transportation.

Minimum Expectations Goal Statement
