Ridgecrest EMT Intensive Blog

Week one on the Landmark EMT Intensive explodes with a fired up group of students soaking in this new curious world of street medicine. This first week concluded with a field trip to Buncombe County Rescue Squad where students were able to have hands-on experience with EMS ambulance equipment. The Buncombe County Rescue Squad opened their newly purchased ambulance and equipment to our students to explore.

We were allowed to pull off equipment and practiced using it with the intent of assisting EMS crews when riding with EMS during clinical rotations. Those rotations were starting this same day for some. With deep gratitude we thank you Buncombe County Rescue Squad for opening your doors to us. Our students found it a great beginning in preparation for their clinical experience. Thank you everyone for a great week one!
