The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Paramedic (EMTP) are single role positions having emergency and preventative medical care responsibilities.  Depending on the nature of the emergency, the EMT or EMTP will drive emergency response vehicles, provide basic or advanced life support medical intervention based on licensure level, and provide support services at the scene of other emergencies.  Non-emergent activities may include preventative activities such as in-home care, home safety assessments, patient follow-up, and social services referrals.  Work is often carried out under stressful conditions in the presence of physical, environmental, biological, and chemical hazards.
