Welcome to Essential EMS!
We are Cody and Grace Killmar; recent first time parents to our beautiful baby girl, proud Idaho locals, and both Idaho licensed EMTs. We both enjoy being an active part of our community and this, combined with our knowledge and experience, is what incited the vision for Essential EMS! We strive to serve and educate our communities
We have created a “web-based learning center”, complete with video conferencing for skills verification. We are also approved to teach and certify BLS Courses for the Health Care Provider, ALL ONLINE! More good news for BLS Providers needing to RENEW their certification, there is no requirement to demonstrate skills. Just complete the online training!
A complete course list has been posted in the "Courses" tab at the top. We value allowing our students to complete courses in their home and on their own time. We have accomplished just that.
Contact us if you have any questions with the "Contact Us" tab at the top. We also travel and schedule in person group classes. Watch our Facebook page for public courses scheduled in your area!
Our Training Center is a HSI Nationally Accredited Organization of the Commission on Accreditation of Pre-Hospital Continuing Education.
All of our training programs are equivalent to the programs offered by both the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Red Cross (ARC). HSI is a recognized major sponsor of CPR training programs.
We can provide a list of approvals if you have any questions whether your certification will be accepted by your employer or be compliant with your medical certification.
Here are just a few of the major approvals-
✔️Idaho Department of Health and Welfare?
✔️Idaho State Board of Dentistry?
✔️Idaho Emergency Medical Services & Preparedness?
✔️National Registry Of Emergency Medical Technicians?
✔️National Ski Patrol⛷
✔️Idaho Outfitters & Guides Licensing Board?
and many more!
Our team sees people of all ages, through all phases of life, whether you need preventive care or treatment for a specific condition or acute illness. We promote the concept of a medical home, emphasizing a continuous relationship with a provider coordinating care for both wellness and illness. We believe that knowing you over many years, and knowing your family, helps us understand how your healthcare impacts your life.
At our clinic, we offer a wide scope of services, including women’s health, obstetrics, annual exams, immunizations for children and adults, family planning, skin biopsies and lesion removals, diabetes management, and sports medicine. If your condition requires a specialist, we’ll help refer you to the appropriate provider.
We also offer orthopedic and physical therapy for adults and children to help with recovery from an injury, surgery, or to manage a chronic issue like arthritis.
