Responding To Emergencies (RTE)
The American Red Cross RTE certification enables candidates to learn how to provide care for an ill person until EMS arrives. The course content provides the knowledge and skills necessary for participants to safely identify and give appropriate care, regardless of the type of emergency. The course emphasizes the basic steps to follow in any emergency, beginning with the most important step, the decision to act. It further helps participants confront their fears of becoming involved and giving care.
The course explains the emergency medical services (EMS) system, stressing the need for rapid medical assistance in an emergency and provides instruction on appropriate care for a variety of injuries and sudden illnesses that lay responders may encounter in their workplaces, schools, camps, communities and homes. In addition, EPI-PEN certification is also included.
