Edmonson Voice Staff
The Edmonson County Ambulance Service recently hosted two training sessions. The PEPP (Pediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals) training was conducted on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 and was presented by Air Methods. Staff from Edmonson County Ambulance Service as well as Hart County EMS and Mammoth Cave National Park participated in the 16 hour training.
On Dec. 7 and 8 PHTLS (Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support) training was presented by Air-Evac Lifeteam. Staff from Edmonson County Ambulance Service, Barren-Metcalfe EMS, Mammoth Cave National Park, Air-Evac, and University of Louisville Hospital took part in the two day training program.
“Edmonson County Ambulance Service is fortunate to be able to present both of these training programs," said EMS Director Keith Sanders. "It's through our good working relationship with both air medical services that we were able to bring this training to Edmonson County. We want to provide our residents with the best possible care and these types of training programs help to insure that.”
