Emergency Services and the quality of care provided at the scene of an accident or disaster has seen tremendous change in the past several decades. Advancements in technologies and medicine have dramatically improved the quality of care available to critically ill or injured patients in the pre-hospital setting. As a result, there has been a corresponding need for increased improvement in education and training for emergency responders.
