EMS Director, Andy Weaver, said, "They've got to communicate and they've got to make decisions and transport patients and triage, figure out who needs to go to the hospital first. It really puts them to a test but it's really about learning, it's not about testing, it's about learning".
Twelve students worked through the motions as a fully capable EMT unit, providing patient care to gain a better perspective of working in this field.
"It was really impressive to see exactly how everyone worked together. This was a great experience especially from a learning environment," commented Justin Hill, a TSTC EMT Student, who participated in today's event.
The students are almost to the point of certification where they will be elligible to work for an ambulance service, or continue on to the level of paramedic.
