NSLIJ – The Emergency Medical Institute
The Emergency Medical Institute began as the Center for Emergency Training and Development back in 1990. The Center was developed by a group of dedicated and concerned individuals who discovered the need to educate students with no fire or EMS agency affiliation. In it’s early existence, the Center operated out of a converted van that would deliver equipment and supplies to class locations throughout the county of Nassau. Having no dedicated facilities, classes were often conducted at local fire stations and schools. In 1992, the Center initiated the first ever paramedic training program in the county of Nassau. Each year, the Emergency Medical Institute continues to train over 350 certified first responders, emergency medical technicians, and paramedics. Today, the Emergency Medical Institute is compromised of a group of over fifty experienced, and highly credentialed emergency medical professionals.
