Certified First Responder

The First Responder is a person who is likely to be treating people in their workplace or going directly to the scene in his/her own vehicle or with non-transporting apparatus, police vehicles, rescue trucks or fire engines. The first responder is taught how to identify and correct life-threatening problems, e.g., airway obstruction and bleeding, how to stabilize the patients and protect them from further injury while waiting for the ambulance to arrive, package the patient and transport.

The First Responder Course gives the students the basic skills needed to provide resuscitative care and stabilization of life-threatening injuries. It includes an orientation to trauma care and medical emergencies.
