High School EMT Class Gains Valuable Experience at MPTC
Last week, the Kewaskum and West Bend High School Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) class, held at Moraine Park’s West Bend campus, participated in a combined educational opportunity with the West Bend Fire Department and Flight for Life, a critical care air medical transport program out of Waukesha.
During the class, students were able to observe the Flight for Life helicopter landing and the appropriate setup of the landing zone. Students were taught the different aeromedical needs for patients and were provided time to inspect the aircraft and ask the flight crew questions about operations and patient care.
“These educational opportunities enhance the students learning with field observation,” Moraine Park Paramedic Instructor, Andrew Novak, said. “Educational opportunities like this would not exist without our strong partnerships with our local departments.”
