The First Responder uses a limited amount of equipment to perform initial assessment and intervention and is trained to assist other Emergency Medical Services (EMS)providers. Example: At the scene of a cardiac arrest, the First Responder would be expected to notify EMS (if not already notified) and initiate CPR with an oral airway and a barrier device.
