The EMS System

The EMS system plays a crucial role in emergency response. This includes understanding how the system works, the role of EMS personnel, and how to effectively communicate with them.

Check, Call, Care

Check, Call, Care is a three-step approach to emergency first aid. This includes checking the scene and the person, calling for emergency medical services, and providing care until help arrives.

Airway Emergencies

Airway emergencies can be life-threatening, and it is essential to know how to handle them. This includes recognizing signs and symptoms of airway obstruction, providing basic life support, and using an AED if necessary.

Breathing and Circulation Emergencies

Breathing and circulation emergencies can also be life-threatening. This includes recognizing signs and symptoms of breathing and circulation emergencies, providing basic life support, and using an AED if necessary.
