Public Information and Education
Our vision is assuring an EMS system in Santa Clara County that provides safe, effective, and quality prehospital care. One of the many ways we achieve this is through classroom training and field exercises.
We have a training and education calendar, which highlights many great new opportunities for Continued Education (CE) and various upcoming lectures or if you already know the class in which you are interested, feel free to register for it online.
Santa Clara County EMS has developed a number of educational resources for the general public as well as the EMS System. The goal for Santa Clara County EMS is to enhance the EMS System's Public Education and Prevention Program while integrating with existing and emerging public education and prevention programs to establish common topics, messages, and channels, ensuring that EMS-relevant public education and prevention messages are emphasized. We know that prevention reduces the incidence of illnesses and critical injuries and contributes to a community’s overall health. Through the prevention component of our mission, the EMS System is working to “put the EMS system out of business.” While this goal will never be achieved, we endeavor to reduce the incidence of illnesses and critical injuries and reduce emergency medical services utilization through education and information.
