14 students complete EMT Class

May 24, 2018

Beginning back in January of this year (2018), Sublette County Unified Fire Department and Sublette County EMS sponsored an Emergency Medical Technician - Basic class. May 14, 2018, 14 students, from all areas of the county, completed the required class work, ambulance and clinic time, written test, and practical evaluations to earn their Wyoming State EMT-B certifications.

Completing an EMT-B certification course is no easy task. The EMT class consisted of a minimum of 200 hours of classroom and 24 hours of hands on training which doesn’t include time spent reading, studying or student led study groups. Not only was this an accomplishment for the students but for their families who supported them.

The accomplishments of the students is only half of the story. The other half comes from the instructors and organizer. Mike Straw (SCUF Safety Officer and SCEMS EMT-I) organized this class and spent many hours of his own to ensure the class was successful. The coursework had to be organized, instructors for each topic needed to be acquired, chapter tests had to be created and graded as well as clinicals and ambulance ride alongs for the students coordinated. Classes were held for 2 nights each week each lasting approximately 4 hours. Instructors for the class were EMTs and medical staff from Sublette County EMS and Medical Clinics who gave of their own time to help make this a successful class.
