Emergency Medical Responder
There are many facets of the emergency medical system. The emergency medical system is defined as the chain of human resources and services that are linked together to provide continuous emergency care at the scene and during transport to a medical facility. The Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), also known as a Medical First Responder (MFR), is a member of the EMS system who has been trained to render first-aid care for a patient and to assist higher-level providers at the scene of an emergency.
EMR's are of utmost importance to our organization. They provide initial, sometimes life-saving, care to the members of our coverage area. Many are members of your township fire departments, factory/business personnel, as well as local law enforcement officers. You can be assured that they have had the training to provide emergent care to you while an ambulance is enroute. They are the first link in the Chain of Survival.
