Students and faculty from the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program at the HCC SouthShore Campus offered free, educational demonstrations on Wednesday, May 23. A table in the courtyard area outside the classrooms featured information about EMS training and services.
The event was held in recognition of National EMS Week, with the goal of educating current students and people in the community about the important services provided by emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics, and the pathway to becoming certified.
HCC trains a majority of this community’s first responders. For more information on EMS programs at HCC, visit hccfl.edu/departments/health-science/ems-programs.aspx.
