TargetSolutions’ EMS Heat Illness and Emergencies online training course has undergone a complete revision with new content and multimedia upgrades.

Victims suffering from heat illness require prompt action from first responders, making a knowledgeable skillset in managing heat-related emergencies a must for EMS personnel.

That reality is what makes the recently enhanced EMS Heat Illness and Emergencies training course a trademark lesson in TargetSolutions’ online EMS catalog. The 60-minute continuing education course recently received critical upgrades, including revitalized content, optimized multimedia, and updated interactions.

Featuring 11 learning modules and a 10-question exam, this course explores the full spectrum of heat illness and emergencies. After successfully completing this course, students should be able to:

  • Define and identify various types of heat illnesses including heat stroke, heat cramps, and heat exhaustion
  • Understand the basics of temperature regulation and how heat is gained in heat-related illnesses
  • Analyze management protocols for each type of heat illness

With more than 1,700 people losing their life each year in the U.S. because of heat stroke – per the Centers for Disease Control – this course is vital for emergency responders.
