EMS - Training

Buncombe County's emergency medical care providers continually train to ensure that our patients receive the most up to date and efficient care possible. All field personnel receive a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education in a variety of topics.

Much of our training is through the Emergency Services department of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College where personnel receive certifications such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Basic Trauma Life Support, and many others. Personnel also receive in-house training using the internet, video tapes and portable training programs.
