Course Description

Get prepared to respond with All Hazards Disaster Response (AHDR), NAEMT’s new course that teaches participants how to analyze potential threats in their area, assess available resources, and create a response plan that will save lives.

Features of a response plan covered in the course include:

Communicating effectively during disasters.

Mutual aid and interoperability.

Managing resources such as supplies, medications and equipment.

Triage and transportation strategies and challenges.

Patient tracking and evacuation.

At the start of the course, participants conduct a "hazards vulnerability analysis" to assess features of their environment, both natural and manmade, that pose risk, along with assessing the needs of vulnerable populations, such as assisted living homes or hospitals, that need special consideration during such an event.

Instructors can customize the course to fit the specific needs of participants, including geographic area and availability of resources. Content is presented in the context of realistic scenarios, culminating with a large-scale mass casualty activity.

 

The EMT class provides the initial training to apply for certification with the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health. The EMT is responsible for initial assessment, stabilization, and transportation of an injured or medically ill person. EMT’s perform duties, such as, CPR, patient stabilization, airway clearance, hemorrhage control, initial wound care, fracture stabilization, and emergency childbirth. They must exercise good judgment and leadership under stress and must deal with people of all ages experiencing injuries and death. NREMT practical testing included.

This class also provides clinical ride time on an ambulance 2 shifts a month. This gets you out of the classroom and into an ambulance to learn hands on with a preceptor.

 

Hunter’s Ambulance sponsors an accelerated EMT training course taught by experienced EMS Instructors to become an Emergency Medical Technician.  This program is designed to prepare individuals to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification examination.

This valuable time working with an EMT and responding to calls on our busy ambulances provide you with experience you can't get elsewhere!  The program provides instruction and practice in dealing with bleeding, fractures, airway obstruction, cardiac arrest, and emergency childbirth. Students learn how to use and maintain common emergency equipment, such as backboards, suction devices, splints, oxygen delivery systems, and stretchers.

This accelerated course is held on Monday and Wednesday from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm and Friday from 8:00am until 12:00 pm. There will also be 1 Saturday class for the final exam from 9 am - 4:30 pm on August 11th.

NAEMT's Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care through global education.  PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. 

PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to keep up with the advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines and feedback from PHTLS participants.
