Local EMS to hold first responder course
Emanuel County EMS will conduct a first responder course in Swainsboro.
The course is an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course that follows the National EMS curriculum. This curriculum is 50 hours in length and covers all aspects of initial emergency medical care.
The training will be conducted at Swainsboro Fire Department on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 10 pm. Course registration and initial orientation will be on February 11, 2021 at the fire department at 6 p.m.
The opportunity is funded through a grant from the Georgia Trauma Commission, so there is no charge to the student.
Upon completing the course, the student will be provided with a medical “jump kit” and a DOT-approved safety vest.
