The EMS Youth Academy

The EMS Youth Academy is a program that shows area teenagers what it takes to respond to emergencies in Toombs and Montgomery Counties. Each night the Explorers were exposed and educated on the different professions and aspects that create an EMS system from the time the 911 call is made to the care received at Meadows Regional Hospital. The explorers also received a basic first aid overview as well as being trained to perform CPR. The classes concluded with a drill in which the Explorers were able to arrive on the scene of a mock wreck scene with area First Responders and the Air Evac helicopter.
