Lee: EMT training course offered

Southern Berkshire Volunteer Ambulance Squad, Great Barrington, and Lee Fire & Rescue are partnering to teach an Emergency Medical Technician course in February 2018.

The course, which will be conducted at Lee Fire & Rescue headquarters, 177 Main St., is approximately 160 hours long over a three-and-a-half month span.

Students will learn critical thinking and practical skills necessary to provide emergency medical care in the pre-hospital environment.

Students who successfully complete the course and pass both a National Registry of EMT written and practical examination, will earn National certification that meets minimal occupational requirements to start a career in Emergency Medical Services.
