The High School EMS Program is a two-year, exciting exploration into the emergency services career field. The first year involves career exploration into the many EMS careers, such as EMT, paramedic, firefighter, registered nurse, dispatcher and police officer. This junior year involves extensive study of anatomy, medical terminology and the study of disease. Other areas covered include counter-terrorism, Homeland Security, scene safety and biohazard awareness. Students are certified in CPR /First Aid, defibrillation with an AED, STOP THE BLEED®
training, HIPAA confidentiality, CareerSafe and Bloodborne Pathogens. Students get two opportunities to shadow at area fire departments, emergency rooms and dispatch centers.
The senior year involves taking the formal Ohio EMT training course. This 250+ hour course includes many clinical hours in emergency rooms, rescue squads and dispatch centers. Students get hands-on experience dealing with real emergency patients in a variety of clinical environments. Auburn EMT students must maintain a high academic average, and upon successful completion, can take the National Registry of EMT’s board test at the end of the year. Most students, who gain their EMT certification, end up working in local ER’s, area fire departments and dispatch centers.
