EMT and Basic Life Support

An emergency medical technician (EMT) is an emergency responder trained to provide emergency medical services to the critically ill and injured. EMT's are trained in basic medical knowledge and skills, and practice basic life support procedures. 

The goal of EMT intervention is to rapidly evaluate a patient's condition and to maintain a patient's airway, breathing and circulation. In addition, EMTs are trained to control external bleeding, prevent shock, and prevent further injury or disability by immobilizing any potential injuries or fractures, while expediting a safe transport of the patient to a hospital for definitive medical care.


UD EMS is located in the University of Dayton Student Neighborhood at 214 Lawnview Ave
