An EMT is trained to assess a patient's condition, and to perform such emergency procedures as deemed necessary to maintain a patent airway with adequate breathing and cardiovascular circulation, until the patient can be transferred to an appropriate destination for advanced medical care. Interventions include cardiopulmonary resuscitation, defibrillation, controlling severe bleeding, preventing shock, head neck and spine immobilization to prevent spinal damage, and the splinting of bone fractures.
Drivers are responsible for the safety of not only the patient, but the crew as well; both enroute to the hospital, and back to the squad building. All drivers are either CEVO or EVOC certified, and have been cleared to drive by a unanimous decision from the line officers. Prior to driving with a patient on board, all drivers must complete a minimum of 10 trips driving back from the hospital unloaded.
Cadets are any member from the ages of 14-18. While unable to act as a primary caregiver, a cadet is allowed to observe and take part in a patient's treatment. Lanoka Harbor EMS typically permits only one Cadet to ride each duty night, to promote one-on-one education with their Crew Chief.
