Emergency Medical Technicians

Employment for EMTs is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The proportion of older people, who most use emergency medical services, is growing in many communities, placing more demands on the emergency medical services delivery system and increasing the need for EMTs. There is also high turnover in this occupation (due to limited opportunities for advancement and modest pay), and many openings will occur as current EMTs leave the field. Demand is also growing as the number of specialized medical facilities increases. More EMTs will be needed to transfer patients to these facilities for treatment.
