Farmington First Responders

Role of  a First Responder

The role of the First Responder is unique in the emergency medical services field. The EMT, Paramedic, staff at the hospital is constantly focused on the patient. While the First Responder is initially focused on the patient, correcting life threatening conditions, caring and comforting. After the patient leaves in the care of the ambulance crew, the First Responders are still at the scene, helping the family deal with the situation there. They have been known to help clean up the house, move furniture back in place, lockup and secure the house, sit and talk with the family members. On occasion they have been known to baby-sit pets, notify family members, even milk the cows.
