EMR Program at J.W. Mitchell High School

Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) program is designed for those Senior students interested in an exciting, face-paced, rewarding healthcare career, especially with an emphasis on emergency medical services and care.

These EMR students were attending an orientation session at Transcare Ambulance Services in Tampa, in preparation for their clinical Ride-Along hours, where they will work directly with EMS professionals in the community, performing patient assessments, providing pre-hospital emergency care, and assisting with triage and trauma rescue.
