The course lasted eight-hours each day; students slept in the ambulance bay each night. The 40-hour course was packed into a one-week class. The course presented an exciting opportunity to develop emergency medical skills and knowledge that will enable the student to assist people who have sustained an accidental injury or who are suffering from a sudden illness or medical problem. The course follows a national curriculum that was developed by representatives from many federal and state agencies and from professional medical groups. Leslie Maison of Pahrump and a certified first responder,instructed this course. The first part of this course was for the students to understand their roles and responsibilities as emergency medical service providers. Students were taught that provid- ing emergency medical care is stressful physically and emo- tionally. EMS personnel are trained to be prepared at all times, know what equipment is essential, be able to think on their feet and understand the fundamentals of: responding promptly to the scene; protecting themselves; and protecting the inci- dent scene and patients from further harm. The one-week course schedule consisted of ABC (airway, breathing, circulation) airway care and rescue breathing; patient assessment; medical emergencies; bleeding, shock, and soft tissue injuries; injuries to muscles and bones; child- birth; and extrication, Maison reported.
