Emergency First Responder Volunteers to Graduate on Monday

Emergency First
Responder Volunteers to Graduate on Monday
Class Hosted by
MCCG through State Grant
MACON, GA (Friday, Dec. 16, 2011) –
After 13 weeks of learning the basics of how to be an emergency first responder, 13 Twiggs County residents will graduate on Monday at 6 p.m. from the Twiggs County First Responder Training Class hosted by Emergency Medical Services of The Medical Center of Central Georgia. These new volunteers for Twiggs County Rescue Department are armed with training in basic first aid and CPR, immobilization of patients with traumatic injuries, oxygen administration, and even how to deliver a baby. These volunteers, with Twiggs County Rescue Department, can respond to 9-1-1 calls in their county for persons needing medical assistance.
The graduation ceremony will be held at 404 Missile Base Rd. in the Twiggs County Industrial Park.
The class was funded by a competitive grant from the Georgia Trauma Commission through the Georgia Association of Emergency Medical Services. Twiggs County was selected because of its highly rural setting and lack of a county hospital.
EMS at MCCG is currently hosting a similar first responder class in Jones County.
