They Make Every Second Count

If you have ever been injured or suffered the effects of an illness, the first thing most of us think of is wanting to stop the pain and second to know we are going to be “okay.”

Common sense and plenty of research have shown the positive effects of early treatment in accomplishing both those goals and more.

So, isn’t it good to know when you call 9-1-1 highly trained Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are being directed to your location as quickly as possible with the most current equipment, medications, training and communications to provide you the best medical care possible?

Thousands of times each day, across the country, Emergency Medical Services teams respond and deliver expert care to ensure the best patient outcomes, sometimes in dangerous conditions.

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics care for the sick or injured in emergency medical settings. People’s lives often depend on the quick reaction and competent care provided by these workers. EMTs and paramedics respond to emergency calls, performing medical services and transporting patients to medical facilities.

Remember to say “Thank You” anytime you see the thousands of professionals who give of their time and expertise to help their neighbors in need, often as volunteers.

We, at ReaLifeSim, are proud to partner with the EMS community by providing tools to help deliver the most realistic clinical training experiences possible, so they in turn can deliver the best care with competence and confidence.
