To maintain that license the EMT must take a refresher course every two years. There is also recertification on certain skills that must be done with our training officer every six months, and our medical control director every year. The service must follow protocols from our medical control doctor. We must stay compliant with all federal, state, and local laws/regulations. There are mandatory monthly meetings/practices.
Our service also gives CPR and first aid classes, and offers demonstrations/talks to the public through city organizations, churches, etc. Every year the EMT's go to all of the local schools (pre-K through 2nd grade) instructing the children about health and safety, and how to use 911.
