Healing Hands/Compassionate Hearts
The StarFire EMS goal is to provide high quality educational opportunities for students who want to become EMTs and to provide opportunities for their continuing education and national continuing competency requirements needs. Our students are family.
StarFire EMS eclectic teaching staff is made up of EMTs, paramedics, nurses, and physicians with almost 1,000 combined years EMS prehospital and hospital-based experience in addition to their years as EMS educators.
StarFire EMS instructors are credentialed EMS instructors in Massachusetts and/or New Hampshire. All program staff members are certified by the American Heart Association as CPR instructors (CPR and/or ACLS) in addition to a variety of other teaching credentials.
StarFire EMS teaching staff work in many of the ambulance services in northeast Massachusetts with principal instructional staff members having more than 750 years combined years of experience in hospital-based EMS, private ambulance industry, fire- based service, and (specialty) sports car and motorcycle racing EMS. Program skill lab teaching staff brings another hundred years of experience with them.
StarFire EMS programs meet or exceed all requirements established by the Department of Transporta-tion/National Highway Transportation Safety Agency (DOT/NHTSA) and amended by the Com- monwealth of Massachusetts.
Our programs, staff, and equipment have met, and continue to meet, a stringent set of criteria. We make every effort to exceed the minimums whenever and wherever we can.
Some of our staff have been teaching since 1975, others since 1988, and still others joined us in the last ten to fifteen years. We are proud of the work we have done and the students that have been and continue to be taught in our program.
In 2009 we opened and in 2010 we closed the StarFire EMS education center in Hanover, MA. We hired program staff that bring with them 100 years and more of experience in work in the prehospital arena and teaching experience. Most students from the programs taught in Hanover that completed the certification testing process did so successfully.
We expect you to work hard – and we promise to work hard too. Our goal is to prepare you to be successful – in completing the course, in completing the State EMT Certification Exam process, and in working as an EMT. We hope to become your source of EMS education – initial education programs, continuing education courses, and national continuing competency requirement courses. Instructors and teaching program staff will help you learn what you need to know to work in the streets as an emergency medical technician (EMT). We will also prepare you to meet specific requirements of the State Certification Exam process.
