According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of paramedics and emergency medical technicians is projected to grow by 23% between 2012 and 2022. This unprecedented growth rate is much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations. Emergencies, such as car crashes, natural disasters, or acts of violence, will continue to create demand for EMTs and paramedics. 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 create greater demand for EMTs and paramedic services.
