Portal Rescue

Emergency Medical

Emergency Medical Technicians at Portal Rescue handle about 50 calls a year. After completing the 130 hour EMT Basic course, all EMTs receive continuing education and must complete a 24-hour refresher every two years. In addition, monthly meetings provide ongoing in-house training.
