Community Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Community Emergency Medical Services is a new resource that will work to fill critical gaps in our communities’ health care systems. Many of these gaps lie within the underserved communities or chronically ill that either lack access to appropriate care or need additional help. Certified community EMS providers work to assist patients in navigating healthcare challenges, overcoming barriers, and establishing ties within community resources.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

Community EMS training is now available for currently licensed EMS providers, advanced emergency medical technicians, intermediate emergency medical technicians, and paramedics. Increase your knowledge level and become eligible for national certification.
