Livingston County will be closed on Monday, May 27th in honor of Memorial Day.

Within the past few years the education division at Livingston County has been substantially growing with initial education courses, American Heart Association (AHA) courses, International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) courses, etc. Education has a few new ideas in store. We are excited to continue to grow and spread the wealth of knowledge.


EMT Program

We offer an EMT course which allows those who may want a career change into becoming a first responder to find their skill set and learn how to treat people with illness or injury. We also teach EMT to local high school seniors. If interested, or looking for further information, please contact Mikel Capollari at

Paramedic Program

This course is held in association with Ascension Genesys, but is hosted at the main station in Howell, MI. This course allows students to become the best provider they can be with training and education. If interested, please contact instructor Saralynn Bush at

Instructor Coordinator

This is a hybrid course where experienced providers can obtain the training and schooling to become an instructor in their field of EMS. If interested, please contact instructor Saralynn Bush at

American Heart Association (AHA) Courses

We offer all of the following AHA courses on site at Livingston County EMS. These courses range from bystander first aid and CPR to Advanced life support for all ages and abilities. If you have any questions on getting signed up for one of these courses, please contact Angelia Ragan at
