Emergency Medical Services

At a Glance

Paramedic • AEMT • EMT • EMR

The sirens sound … paramedics or emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are on their way to the scene of an accident or to assist someone stricken by a sudden illness. A person’s life depends on the emergency medical personnel’s quick response, decision-making ability and precise medical care delivered under extreme pressure. LLCC Emergency Medical Services prepares students to provide prehospital emergency medical care. Students train in LLCC’s state-of-the-art indoor ambulance simulator to master handling real-world situations. EMT, advanced EMT (AEMT) and paramedic courses have a clinical portion. Clinical time is completed in and outside of hospital settings.

The Lincoln Land Community College Paramedic Program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP Executive Office).
