Fucigna, Joseph T.; And Others
The main objective was to develop and pilot test a basic course for ambulance personnel with emphasis on the medical aspect of training. This included the identification of a medically acceptable text or manual, and determining the prerequisites for selecting students and instructors. Secondary objectives were to outline the requirements for additional courses. Some of the topics covered are the concept of emergency medical technician as a new paramedical career, developing and pilot testing a basic training course in emergency medical care, upgrading the performance and status of ambulance personnel, and standards for training and licensing individuals as emergency medical technicians.
