The MFR is the first level of responder to an emergency. The MFR course is a study of the topics and skills necessary to make life saving interventions and stabilize patients in a prehospital environment while waiting the arrival of more advanced care. Students who are successful in this course are eligible for licensing as a Medical First Responder through the Michigan Department of Community Health via the National Registry of EMT’s exam. Course also includes the opportunity to encounter the care of patients not only at the scene of an emergency, but during the transport and transfer of patients to higher levels of care. This clinical experience requires that MFR’s serve as an EMS team member during emergency care for 16 hours of patient care utilizing an Advanced Life Support agency.
