EMT/EMS Certification Education in Bergen, Fairfield, Rockland and Westchester Counties

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics typically complete a postsecondary educational program. All states require EMTs and paramedics to be licensed; requirements vary by state.

Employment of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow 7 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations. Emergencies, such as car crashes, natural disasters, and acts of violence, will continue to require the skills of EMTs and paramedics.

Both a high school diploma or equivalent and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification typically are required for entry into postsecondary educational programs in emergency medical technology. Most of these programs are nondegree award programs that can be completed in less than 1 year; others last up to 2 years. Paramedics, however, may need an associate’s degree. Programs in emergency medical technology are offered by technical institutes, community colleges, universities, and facilities that specialize in emergency care training. Some states have EMR positions that do not require national certification. These positions typically require state certification.

NOTE: In many states you can start training for EMT/EMS as early as age 16!

Recycling is not the answer. You MUST reduce your consumption.

FACT: unless you’re reducing your consumption of plastic, recycling means nothing

PROBLEM: plastic is everywhere and part of everything-including clothing

SOLUTION: do what can, when possible. Don’t buy unless absolutely necessary and there is no alternative.

What I’ve done:

  • Buy used clothes, to reduce demand for new resources to manufacture brand new clothes. 60% of my current wardrobe is used, including shoes and sneakers
  • Carry reusable silverware to use at work
  • Use mug or reusable cup at work for drinks
  • Refuse straws
  • Refuse packet condiments/disposable silverware (especially if it’s take out, you got it at home)
  • Buy vitamins in glass bottles (glass can be recycled over and over)
  • Having a party? Buy aluminum cans instead of soda in gallon. Aluminum can be recycled multiple times.
    Stop buying products that use excessive packaging
  • Become aware of how much garbage- including recycling, you make per day. There are some days I don’t make any garbage.

I made a conscious effort to be aware of my impact. I don’t worry about others, I do what I can. I am among millions on this planet that got companies changing their ways because they’re loosing money by not being mindful of the garbage they’re creating with their products.
