Is it true that Flight Attendants get EMT training in case of emergency because it may time to land the plane so an ambulance can get there?

CPR and basic first aid only and how's to use a defibrillator but anyone weho cash read or interpret pictures cash use of those

Probably not. EMT-training is pretty expensive, and people who have it can probably get jobs that pay more than being a flight-attendant does

No. Many airlines train basic first aid and cpr and how to use defibrillators but theres no federal mandate that requires it nowadays. It really depends on the airline. Odds are, there will usually be a doctor or nurse flying so its cheaper for the airline to roll the dice and save the time and money

Depends on the airline, but there would be some training in first aid, this may be CPR, use of defibrillators, basic first aid etc..

I don't know the training in detail but you can go to flight attendant school websites and probably find that. In general though, flight attendants are "crew". Their main task is to see to the safety and welfare of passengers and that includes emergencies of all sorts. Serving food and drinks is somewhat to give them something to do - not meant badly. Lots of people think they are bartenders first and safety personnel second, which is backwards.
