Emergency Services program

The Emergency Services program prepares students for employment as emergency medical technicians and/or firefighters. Students will learn patient assessment, bandaging and splinting, use of the AED, patient-assisted medication administration, airway management, bleeding control, managing environmental emergencies, handling emergency childbirth, beginning and advanced structural and wildland firefighting skills, and hazardous materials operations.

The DATC is accredited by the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy (UFRA) and the firefighter courses are designed to meet the National Fire Protection Association professional qualifications requirements for certification. Students who complete all of the Firefighter courses will be prepared to earn the following UFRA certifications: Hazardous Materials Awareness, Hazardous Materials Operations, Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Wildland Firefighter I, and Wildland Firefighter II.

Through partnerships with the Layton City Fire Department, Davis Hospital, Lakeview Hospital, North Davis Fire District, and South Davis Community Hospital, the DATC is able to provide an exceptional training experience to students.
