Background: There are many strategies emergency medical service provider companies and governmental agencies use to make people aware of Emergency medical services. Evaluate if public education strategies have a good impact by checking prior awareness of students who were just starting their professional paramedic program and to identify which areas more emphasis must be given while teaching basic emergency care courses.
Materials & Methods: A survey questionnaire containing 30 questions has been developed and distributed. 3 groups of students, freshers, failed, and withdrawn were recruited. Responses were collected, tabulated, and analyzed using SPSS and one-way ANOVA.
Results: It is found that students have good knowledge of Basic life support and CPR. The least knowledge was found in Medical and trauma emergencies. Freshers have statistically more diverse information. There is a significant difference between freshers and repeating students in terms of basic emergency care knowledge.
Conclusion: All strategies for people’s education have a good impact and we must keep using them. While teaching basic emergency medical care courses more emphasis must be given to the medical and trauma emergencies modules.
