Emergency First Responder Volunteers Graduate

Emergency First Responder Volunteers Graduate
Class Hosted by MCCG through State Grant
 
MACON, GA (June 7, 2012) – After 13 weeks of learning the basics of how to be an emergency medical responder, 19 Baldwin County residents graduated from the First Responder Training Class hosted by Emergency Medical Services of The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG).
 
These new volunteers for Baldwin County Rescue Department and Georgia College and State University are armed with training in basic first aid and CPR, immobilization of patients with traumatic injuries, oxygen administration, and even deliver of a baby. These volunteers, with Baldwin County Fire Rescue Department and Georgia College and State University, can respond to 9-1-1 calls in their county for persons needing medical assistance.
 
The class was funded by a competitive grant from the Georgia Trauma Commission through the Georgia Association of Emergency Medical Services. Baldwin County was selected because of its highly rural setting.
 
Last year, EMS at MCCG received grants to conduct similar classes for first responders in Jones and Twiggs Counties. Three additional grants have been awarded to EMS at MCCG to host additional First Responder classes in Baldwin, Jones and Twiggs Counties.
