Emergency Medical Services (Firefighter/Paramedic)
About Our Program
Do you want to help people? Do you want to make a difference in people’s lives? Do you want to feel good about the work you do? Do you like variety and excitement in your work? Do you want to work full-time (FT) and still have 3-4 days off a week?
If you answered yes to any of these, then a career in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) may be right for you! The Paramedic program at HFC will help you achieve personal and professional growth. The goal of this curriculum is to prepare individuals to become a competent, entry-level, paramedic.
Paramedics are highly trained members of the health-care community often responsible for bringing life-saving diagnostic and treatment skills to the patient at the scene of an emergency. Paramedics receive intense training in EKG interpretation, emergency pharmacology, and advanced life-support procedures. The scope of practice of the paramedic is rapidly expanding, creating a number of new employment opportunities.
The EMS Program at HFC offers the options of certificates of achievement in Basic Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Paramedic, or the option of an Associate in Applied Science degree. The HFC Paramedic Program has been awarded the highest level of approval through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of EMS, Trauma and Preparedness.
