Code: PX-1900.2200-150

Organizations that are actively seeking individuals with the requisite skills and experience who are willing, on a voluntary basis without remuneration, to provide advanced life support care for people who are ill and/or injured and, when necessary, to transport patients to a health care facility for further treatment. EMTs apply artificial respiration or administer oxygen in cases of suffocation and asphyxiation, dispense antiseptic solutions to prevent infection, start and administer intravenous fluids, and perform other emergency medical procedures during the ambulance ride. Emergency treatment for complicated problems is carried out under the direction of medical doctors by radio preceding or during transport.
