About Us

Thank you for considering First Response Emergency Medical Education for your EMS Educational Courses. First Response EME is committed to improving the quality of learning for each individual student. It is our goal to provide the best classroom, clinical and field EMS education possible. With state-of-the-art teaching materials, comfortable classroom surroundings and a dedicated staff, that commitment is expressed every day.

The EMS programs are presented through a series of lecture, lab, clinical and field internship experiences. Through clinical and practical instruction as well as a field internship, you’ll be prepared to function in the uncontrolled environment of emergency medicine in the pre-hospital setting. Our students work with state-of-the-art simulation mannequins and equipment including an ambulance simulator. Students benefit from instructors with extensive field experience in emergency medical services and paramedic settings—knowledge they apply to the classroom.
