									Johnny Torres       1st period            8-30-10


The reason why I wont to be an Emt is cause I
wont to help and save peoples life. Having
someone’s life in my hand would be a tough
job but I would be willing to do what ever it
would take to help that person. I would have
to see what’s the matter with the person and
try to save and help them while transferring
the to a near by hospital. Just the thought of
this job want me to do my best in high school
so that I could be able to do this job.

 What does Emt stand for?

they are the first to evaluate the nature and
extent of a medical problem. They determine
the number of people injures, types of injury
present, degree of trauma, and any
preexisting medical conditions the victim may
have such as allergies, or diabetes which
requires special medical attention.

How old you have to be and what you have to
