		EMS Training

EMS Training

 

The EMTs of the Stonewall Jackson Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad train hard and often. Being certified isn't enough when you want to be the best. Once basic and advanced training is completed, both career and volunteer personnel train, often together, to keep in top form for EMS emergencies.

 

Driver Training

 

Ambulances are bulky vehicles, and with patient care going on the back, it is important to handle them smoothly. Ambulance drivers attend Emergency Vehicle Operators Courses just like fire apparatus drivers. EVOC I (Classroom and light vehicles) and EVOC II (Ambulances) are required for every driver.

 

BLS Training

 

Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) is a 110 hour course that focuses on caring for traumatic injuries and basic emergency medical care.  Skills learned in EMT-B include basic oxygen administration, bandaging and splinting of injuries,   assisting patients with medications for specific medical problems and triage of a Mass Casualty Incidents (MCI). EMT-B classes are held at SJVFD & RS through a contract with Associates in Emergency Care (AEC) and at the Public Safety Academy (PSA).  The real training comes from being on the streets in a busy, quality-oriented department. That's why it is hard to find better EMT?s anywhere than here at SJVFD & RS.RS.

 

ALS Training

 

EMT-Intermediate (EMT-I) is a grueling program. After working on the ambulance as a lead EMT for at least one year, members are eligible to take EMT-I. SJVFD & RS, through a contract with AEC, currently holds EMT-I classes at the station.  The program is also taught at a couple of the nearby colleges and universities, as well as at the PSA. EMT-I's must do a minimum of 142 hours of classroom time and rotations in the hospital and on medic units before being eligible to sit for the state or National Registry EMT-Intermediate (NREMT-I) exam. This program focuses assessing and treating patients with cardiac emergencies, with a lesser focus on other medical emergencies. Skills include intubation, ECG interpretation, drug administration via IV, IO, IM and Sub-Q routes, and the administration of cardiac related medications.

 

EMT-Paramedic (EMT-P) builds on the skills learned in EMT-I, and focuses on specific medical emergencies, geriatrics and pediatrics. An additional 444 classroom hours and rotations in hospitals and on medic units are required. Along the way, most EMT-Paramedic students are concurrently certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Basic Trauma Life Support (BTLS), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). The final goal is to pass the National Registry EMT-Paramedic (NREMT-P) written and practical exam.  The written exam is taken on-line, and the practical exam is a multi-station exam consisting of all ?hands-on? skills a NREMT-P could perform in the field. With hundreds of written questions and hours of practical tests, the National Registry exam is quite possibly the most difficult EMT exam in the nation.
