Every day, thousands of people's lives depend on the rapid response and work of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) who work as medical first responders in ambulances. EMTs may be called to help with incidents as varied as car crashes, to heart attacks, to slips, to childbirth, and many more. EMTs are also frequently required to be present at large public events in case of an emergency that might arise. In an emergency, EMTs are dispatched by 911 operators and often work alongside firefighters and police to help resolve a situation. Once on the scene, the EMT is not trying to fix the patient's problem so much as they want to stabilize them enough to be able to transport them to a hospital for more professional care.

On the scene, EMTs are trained to assess the critical problems and follow rigid procedures to help stabilize the patient. EMTs use specialized equipment such as neck braces and back boards to immobilize patients for transport in order to prevent further injury and worsening of current conditions before arrival at a hospital.

Once a patient has been taken to a hospital, EMTs transport the patient to the emergency area and report on the condition of the patient to the doctors and nurses on staff. In cases of extreme emergency, EMTs may also be asked to help with the care of a patient at the hospital while doctors are otherwise disposed helping other patients in more urgent condition. The EMTs work may also occasionally extend to the transportation of patients from one hospital to another for special treatment.
