The most highly trained pre-hospital EMS providers are EMT (emergency medical technicians) paramedics, who care for patients on site and then help get them to the hospital. As workers or volunteers for ambulance services, fire departments, hospitals, and government based services, EMT’s may be called in to help someone suffering from a broken toe one hour, and someone else having a massive heart attack the next.
