Emergency Medical Services
The EMS Program at Lord Fairfax is a challenging series of courses designed to prepare the student to perform as an entry-level Advanced Life Support (ALS) pre-hospital provider.
Topics covered include; Medical/Legal issues, Anatomy and Physiology, Pharmacology, Patient Assessment and treatment strategies for medical and trauma patients.
Upon successful completion of applicable course work the student will be eligible to take the appropriate certification exam for that provider level (i.e. Advanced EMT, EMT-Intermediate, Paramedic). The classroom, lab, clinical and field rotations require a serious commitment of time and effort on the part of the student.
Although the program is demanding, the benefits of a career in EMS, and the opportunity to serve the community, are extremely rewarding.
