Crawfordville, Florida – Wakulla County Emergency Medical Services and Fire partnered with the Wakulla High School Medical Academy to help educate the students in emergency care.
The senior students in the Medical Academy had a busy semester learning the First Responder curriculum. Their instructor, Mrs. Krista Lawhon, teaches the students the information from the text book while Brandon Alyea with Wakulla County Fire Rescue teaches the students their hands-on skills.
The students were able to participate in “ride-a-longs” where they worked along side the County’s EMT’s and Paramedics. The students spent the mornings at the ambulance station and responded to calls with the EMS team. This opportunity has enhanced the students’ knowledge on emergency care, better enabling them to be future First Responders in our community.
“Wakulla EMS was glad to host this program. The students were committed and enthusiastic about careers in medicine. It was a pleasure to have them be apart of the EMS team,” said Fran Council, EMS Director.
