Become an Emergency Medical Responder-EMR

What is an EMR?

The Emergency Medical Responder’s scope of practice includes simple skills focused on lifesaving interventions for critical patients. Typically, the EMR renders on-scene emergency care while awaiting additional EMS response and may serve as part of the transporting crew, but not as the primary care giver. The EMR’s scope of practice includes simple, non-invasive interventions to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with acute out-of-hospital medical and traumatic emergencies. After initiating care, the EMR transfers care to higher level personnel. The EMR serves as part of an EMS response system that ensures a progressive increase in the level of assessment and care.
