Prerequisite(s): None
Corequisite(s): None

As the first person on the scene of an emergency, you have a special role. You can make a difference in a life-threatening situation. By appropriately applying your knowledge, skills, and abilities, you can stabilize patients and possibly prevent the deterioration of their conditions until EMS arrives. Your ability to assist with emergency medical situations and your ability to remember legal guidelines are important skills, as are your sound judgment and good common sense. When called to respond to an emergency, be aware of your attitude, appearance, and behavior at all times. As a criminal justice officer, convey the message that you are competent and trustworthy. A professional and confident manner will reassure and comfort the patient, family, and bystanders in times of panic or chaos.
