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.
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.
