Outreach / Education

Our Community Education section is a very busy group. This group of in-house instructors teaches an array of courses to over 3000 students/year. We are an American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) Training Center, National Association of EMT (NAEMT) Training Center and also teach other provider and community courses. This group is also responsible for over 110 AEDs that have been placed throughout the community at government buildings and high traffic areas where Community members might need assistance. They provide inspections, maintenance, data retrieval and training at each facility with an installed AED.

Our Navigator Program is available for community members who are certified EMT's and interested in starting a career in EMS. These are full-time, paid positions that run 6 months in length and allow the EMT to build experience, knowledge and confidence in seeking a full-time position.  

 

The Summer Youth Program is a collaboration between EMS, Fire and Police. It allows students interested in a career in public safety to be engaged over the summer with public safety providers/instructors and other like-minded students.
