We focus on professional development and are fortunate in our ability to integrate patient simulators as part of our education curriculum. Based on adult learning theories, the goal is to allow our students to practice their skills, learn from their mistakes and gain confidence. Students also have the opportunity to keep their skills current for those high-risk, low-frequency procedures.
All firefighters are required to maintain proficiency in the latest medical skills and interventions, as outlined within our Standard of Care procedures and as authorized by our Medical Director.
