The purpose of the First on the Scene (FOTS) course is to prepare the public to help those who are injured and save lives until EMS arrives. The target audience for this course is the general public, which may include high school and college students. Communities across the country and around the world recognize the need to prepare their citizens to respond to the injured until EMS can arrive on the scene. Whether from natural or man-made disasters, active shooter events, or other incidents at which serious injuries or illnesses occur, increasing the awareness and preparedness of the general public on what to do until EMS can respond is recognized as a valuable aspect of community resilience and is encouraged and promoted by government agencies at the local, state, national, and international levels.
