Dear Mr. Mandelson:
As a skilled EMT with more than eight years of experience, I am pleased to present the enclosed resume. My excellent background as a medical first responder allows me to substantially assist Fillmore Emergency Services in meeting—and exceeding—its goals.
My experience includes responding swiftly and efficiently to dispatched emergency assignments, and subsequently performing condition assessment to identify best next steps for optimal patient care. Collecting witness information, monitoring ongoing patient conditions, and stocking and maintaining emergency vehicles are just a few of many tasks at which I excel, consistently providing a superior level of supportive patient care in highly stressful and often traumatic situations.
Highlights of my experience include the following:
Rapidly responding to 911 calls requiring emergency assistance, ensuring general and critical care during transport from various locations including hospitals, nursing homes, physician offices, and private residences.
Participating in frequent call response in partnership with critical care RNs, fire departments, and law enforcement personnel.
Consistently demonstrating a solid commitment to providing quality patient care in alignment with established protocols, organizational standards, and legal regulations.
Interacting effectively with culturally and socioeconomically diverse populations to ensure superior patient experiences.
Earning certification as a registered EMT in 2008; deep knowledge and certification in CPR and AED.
With my expertise in performing complex, emergency patient care as a dedicated EMT, I am confident that I can greatly contribute to your organization. I look forward to discussing this opportunity and my qualifications in further detail. Thank you for your consideration.
