FFP 0077 - First Responder for Public Safety Personnel
45 Clock Hours
(Fall, Spring, Summer)
This course trains public safety members who are the first to arrive at an emergency in providing efficient and accurate pre-hospital care. Students assess patients for wounds to determine if trauma, shock, burns or closed airways are a problem and how to address those issues by dressing wounds, stabilizing the person or administering oxygen. They immobilize patients and address common emergency medical issues with basic treatments. This course includes hands-on, practical experience and is necessary to be eligible for first responder certification.
This course is a co-requisite course for students entering the Firefighting Certificate program who do not have certification for first responder, EMT, or paramedic.
