B.L.A.S.T. Babysitting Day Camp

B.L.A.S.T. (Babysitting Lessons and Safety Training) Babysitter’s Day Camp was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics for teens and pre-teens to learn about the responsibilities of caring for children. Using scenario-based learning, the class will also address staying safe and dealing with emergency situations.

Citizen’s Academy

This is a hands-on opportunity for community members to see and learn what F–M Ambulance paramedics and EMTs do every day. Participants will have the opportunity to ride along with paramedics and EMTs and go on actual emergencies. The EMS Citizen’s Academy will educate participants about F–M Ambulance and emergency medical services, along with teaching them skills they can use in actual emergencies.

This program is designed for any young person, age 15–21, who is interested in a shadow career program in which you can learn hands-on experience through observation and participation with professional and successful paramedics and EMTs that strive for excellence in patient care, community service, and compassion. We believe our program will better prepare them through high school, college, and life in general as they will be learning a variety of “life lessons” as they ride along with our staff in the ambulances on actual emergencies. This is a great opportunity and a great start for anyone interested in continuing their education in the medical field.

Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS)

Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) is the gold standard of education for emergency medical assessment and treatment. Endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians, AMLS emphasizes the use of the AMLS Assessment Pathway, a systematic tool for assessing and managing common medical conditions with urgent accuracy.

Students learn to recognize and manage common medical crises through realistic case-based scenarios that challenge students to apply their knowledge to highly critical patients.  The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, history, interactive group discussion on potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises.  

Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)

NAEMT's Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care.  PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. 

PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care and decrease mortality. The program is based on a philosophy stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. 

Stop The Bleed

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
