Learn to be a emergency medical responder, or EMR, typically the first person to arrive at the scene of an accident. As an EMR, you must be able to assess a patient's condition and be able to deliver basic first aid. You might experience anything from childbirth to major accidents where individuals may have lost a large amount of blood.
EMRs are trained in controlling blood loss and securing broken limbs. Some serious accidents may call for you to stabilize an individual who has significant spinal damage. EMRs also have training in patient removal and transportation.
