Emergency medical technician (EMT) software is designed to train EMT professionals. These professionals are trained to take care of emergency medical situations arising due to accidents, fires or any other incident at home or workplace causing injuries. These professionals are not exact paramedic even though their work is somehow similar to that of a paramedic Normally ambulances are staffed by at least one staff
with EMT 4 training accompanied by EMT 2 or EMT 3 training. The ambulance driver is also trained in basic EMT skills.
