About Us

We work to keep rural volunteer emergency response agencies operational through the provision of continuing education that is mandatory for certified EMS personnel.
 
The MTU is designed to ensure adequately trained and certified volunteer ambulance, EMTs and First Responders in economically challenged service areas are able to provide 911 services. This includes training in disaster response, incident command and patient triage, instruction in national and state standards of care to rural EMS providers, continuing education and support through curriculum development, training and support of certifying officers for EMT certification testing, and EMT program assistance to rural community colleges.
