Job Description for Paramedic

Paramedics are essential employees in emergency response situations, as they are the ones who respond to emergencies, such as 911 calls, and provide immediate treatment and relocation to a hospital. Paramedics are required to be alert and think quickly, and they must be able to lift bodies onto gurneys and transport them from the scene of an accident to an ambulance, which makes the work of a paramedic both physically and mentally demanding. Paramedics must also be able to administer CPR to patients, stop bleeding, and even use special equipment to bring patients back to life. Paramedics typically work outdoors, and spend most of their time in either an ambulance or emergency response helicopter. They typically work for hospitals and similar facilities with other paramedics, as well as doctors and nurses.
