EMT Training Class To Be Held in Hanover

Have you ever called 911 for an ambulance because you were experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, illness, suffered an injury, been involved in an accident, or were assisting someone who was in need of emergency medical assistance?

Did you know that all four ambulance services in Washington County are staffed primarily by “volunteer” employees? Without dedicated folks who are willing to serve in the community, the ambulance services would not be able to continue to operate as they do currently.

Did you know that the number of EMTs in the area has declined over the past several years?

Are you interested in serving your community as an EMT?

An EMT class will be held in Hanover, KS, beginning September 4th. Class will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with some Saturday classes as well.

This class is open to anyone, you do not have to live in Washington County to participate.

Financial assistance may be available through your local ambulance service.

If you would like more information, please contact Instructor Caroline Scoville at 785-822-4591 or carolinescoville@gmail.com.
