Our Education Philosophy

Education and training for the individual affects each and every one of us who will ever need emergency medical service. Whether you are an emergency professional, a health care provider or a safety-minded citizen, having the proper training and skills could help people or even save lives someday. Community EMS and Botsford Hospital are committed to providing our community with the best emergency education and training services possible.

Our History 

In 1986, the Life Support Training Institute was established to meet the growing need for well-trained emergency medical service professionals. In 1992, LSTI was named a Community Training Center for the American Heart Association. Today, LSTI offers classes for professionals, community classes for adults and special programs just for kids. How we teach our students determines to a great extent how they will treat their patients. We incorporate as many hands-on exercises as possible in every program, from CPR/First Aid through Paramedic-Instructor, to make sure that our students stay motivated to learn.
