The EMS program is designed for students who desire a career in pre-hospital emergency medicine. The program provides the student with the theoretical and practical preparation to qualify the successful graduate at five levels of service: 1) First Responder, 2) Emergency Medical Technician-Basic, 3) Emergency Medical Technician-Intermediate, 4) Emergency Medical Technician-Intermediate (NSC) or 5) Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic. These levels of instruction meet or exceed the New Mexico EMS Minimal Curriculum Standards. The First Responder, EMT-Basic, EMT-I (NSC), and EMT-Paramedic also meet or exceed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration National Standard Curriculum for these levels.

ENMU-Roswell established the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program in 1986 offering EMT Basic and Intermediate classes.  In 1988, the program became the first decentralized Paramedic program outside of Albuquerque in conjunction with the University of New Mexico EMS Academy.  In 1991, ENMU-R’s EMS program became independent from the EMS Academy, becoming New Mexico’s second New Mexico EMS Bureau EMS Education Program.  ENMU-Roswell became accredited by the Joint Review Committee of EMT-Paramedic Programs (now called Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the EMS Professions) in 1994.  Since the EMS program’s beginning, more than 10,000 students have gone through its programs or classes.  This includes over 750 First Responder, 2000 EMT-Basic, 900 EMT-Intermediate, and 750 Paramedic students who have graduated.

Upon successful completion of a level, the graduate will be eligible to take the New Mexico State Licensure and/or National Registry of EMT's examination. ENMU-Roswell offers refresher courses for all levels of service and continuing education courses that are of interest to the Emergency Medical Services community.
