Emergency Medical Technician

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) help people in medical emergencies. When you're an EMT, you might ride in an ambulance and rush to places where someone is hurt or sick. Your main job is to give first aid to the person until they can get to a hospital. This could mean bandaging wounds, helping someone breathe, or even using special equipment to restart a heart. EMTs also need to stay calm in stressful situations and work closely with other medical professionals to make sure patients get the best care possible. Being an EMT can be challenging, but it's also rewarding because you get to make a big difference in people's lives when they need help the most.
