If you are interested in the medical field and helping people, you might consider becoming an emergency medical technician. These healthcare professionals provide immediate assistance to patients in emergency situations before bringing them to the care of a doctor. 

An emergency medical technician, or EMT, is a first responder who is trained in basic medical knowledge and skills in order to provide immediate medical care to patients in an emergency. They are often the first emergency service providers to arrive on the scene of a crisis, such as an accident, medical emergency, fire, or natural disaster. An EMT's main responsibility is to provide basic and emergent medical care to stabilize patients in crisis before transporting them to a hospital where they can be further assisted by a physician.

EMTs can have several levels of responsibility and certification, and each has different requirements. Some areas use EMT-Basic and EMT-Intermediate or advanced levels, while others classify levels of training and certification as emergency medical responder (EMR), emergency medical technician, and advanced emergency medical technician before advancing to the level of a paramedic. While many EMTs work on private ambulances, they can also work for other emergency services, such as a fire department or search and rescue teams.

EMT salaries vary based on their level of certification, employer, experience, and location. The national average salary in the United States is $15.04 per hour, while some salaries range from $7.25 to $38.90.
