In an emergency, EMT’s are typically dispatched by 911 operators to the scene, where they often work with police and firefighters. An AEMT cares for patients at the scene of an accident and while transporting patients by ambulance to the hospital under the direction of more highly trained medical personnel.

Advanced EMT (AEMT) is the second level of emergency medical training; therefore AEMTs have completed the training required at the EMT level, as well as training for more advanced skills, such as; intravenous infusion, advanced airway management, and medication administration.
