Highly Trained and Experienced Frontline Medical Staff
PCRRB EMS employs a team of 40 providers and supervisory staff dedicated to serving you on the frontline. All of our qualified professionals are certified as either Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) or Paramedics (EMT-Ps).
Emergency Medical Technicians
Our EMT level providers receive 160-180 hours of initial training to obtain the certification. They are skilled in wound care/ hemmorhage control, basic airway management and oxygen supplementation, fracture management, spinal immobilization, administration of several emergency medication therapies, CPR/ AED use and receive additional training to prepare them to work along side of a Paramedic provider.
Our Paramedic level providers receive 1000-1200 hours of training that result in either certification or a two year associates degree. In addition to the pre-requisite EMT training, Medics are highly qualified in advanced airway management (including intubation), IV/ IO needle insertion, administration of more than 30 emergency medications, Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALs) and trauma management. All providers recertify through a rigorous 3 year continuing education process.
When Seconds Count
Our providers play a critical role in the chain of survival of heart attack, stroke, sepsis and trauma victims with early recognition, early intervention and early pre-hospital notification being significant contributing factors in the outcomes of these patients.
