Emergency Services class featured on local news during EMS Week

EMS Week started in the 1970s as an initiative to bring attention to the life-saving role EMTs and paramedics fill in our communities.

This year, local news stations were invited into EMCC’s Emergency Services program to see the class in action as they prepared to take their Practical Skills Exam (PSE). That exam is the first step to becoming a certified EMT in the State of New York.
