Emergency Medical Technician Job Outlook


Employment of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow 24% from 2014 to 2024, significantly faster than the forecasted 7% average growth for all occupations. Emergencies such as car crashes, natural disasters, and violence will continue to create demand for EMTs and paramedics. There will also continue to be demand for part-time, volunteer EMTs and paramedics in rural areas and smaller metropolitan areas.


The aging population also will favorably impact the Emergency Medical Technician Job Outlook. Growth in the middle-aged and elderly population will lead to an increase in the number of age-related health emergencies, such as heart attacks or strokes. This, in turn, will foster an increase in the demand for EMTs and paramedic services. An increase in specialized medical facilities will also require more EMTs and paramedics to transfer patients with specific conditions to these facilities for treatment

In recent years, companies that build ambulances have started to update and redesign their interiors to keep EMTs, paramedics, and patients safer during transport. These companies are hiring EMTs and paramedics as consultants to learn their ideas about such updates and designs
