All first responders are credentialed to provide medical care under Dr. Ratcliff. Community First Responders all the way up through First Responder Paramedic have their own tailor-made programs. The goal is medical care that meets or exceeds expectations county-wide. These credentialing processes are designed and implemented with Dr. Ratcliff, the WCEMS clinical practices office, and first responder agencies.
Online education for the WCEMS System is paid for jointly by WCEMS and the Williamson County Fire Chief’s Association. This continuing education is produced by WCEMS and is served on CareerCert, an online education platform. CareerCert requires a membership but some content may be viewed by anyone by accessing the WCEMS YouTube page. In-person training is essential to mastery of many pre-hospital skills.
