The Dearborn County Hospital EMS/Education Department is presenting a First Responder course which will run from August through December. A First Responder is often a firefighter, volunteer with an ambulance service or safety team employee.
Classes will be presented on Tuesdays from 6 to 10 p.m. in the hospital’s conference rooms. The first class is scheduled for Aug. 21. Registration is limited to 12 participants.
“This First Responder course is based on a curriculum developed by the Indiana State Department of Homeland Security,” said instructor Tina Butt, R.N., DCH Emergency Medical Services/Emergency Cardiac Care Coordinator. “Many lifesaving techniques are included. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be certified as First Responders in the State of Indiana.”
The cost to attend the course is $250. For more information or to register, please call the DCH EMS/Education Department at 812-537-8431 or 800-676-5572, ext. 8431.
