Colleton County Fire-Rescue


23/June/2015 – Paramedic Graduation

Four Colleton County Firefighter-EMTs graduated from the Paramedic Training Program at Rescue Training in Savannah Georgia Tuesday morning 23-June. The graduation ceremony was conducted at Rescue Training’s Savannah facility at 10:00. The students have been attending the 10 month long, 1500 hour course since September of 2014. Students attended class in Savannah two days a week and performed clinical training at several hospitals and EMS agencies in Georgia and the Lowcountry. It is a grueling schedule, as the students also worked their regular schedule at Fire-Rescue while attending class. The training includes instruction in ECG interpretation, pharmacology, anatomy and physiology, respiratory care, advanced trauma and medical care, as well as obstetrics. The personnel performed hands on training at the Trauma Center at Memorial Medical Center in Savannah.

We wish them the best in the careers.
