Advanced EMT

The major focus of the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) is to provide basic and limited advanced emergency medical care to those patients who are in need of more care than can be offered by the EMT Basic.  The AEMT possesses the knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. AEMTs function as part of a holistic EMS response and operate under medical oversight. They perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment typically found on an ambulance.
