Weld County Paramedic Services donates ambulance to the Aims EMS programSubmitted on: 09-14-2011
Representatives from Aims Community College and Weld County Paramedic Services joined Weld County Commissioners during their Wednesday meeting to celebrate the donation of an ambulance to the college.
At the Weld County Commissioner's Sept. 14 board meeting, Weld County Paramedic Services donated an ambulance to the Aims Community College Emergency Medical Services program.
"We've had a great long-term relationship with the college, so this was just another way to show our support for Aims," said Dave Bressler, director of Weld County Paramedic Services and a member of the Aims EMS Advisory Committee.
The ambulance will give Aims students in the EMS program the opportunity to learn in a more realistic environment, practicing important skills, such as starting an IV, while in a moving vehicle, Souther said.
"The majority of our first-responders in Weld County receive their training and re-training at Aims," Souther said. "It's wonderful to have such great collaboration between Aims and local EMS professionals in providing critical services for our community."
Aims EMS programs include EMT Basic, Paramedic, EKG Technician, EMT-IV and Medical Assisting – Phlebotomy. For more information about these programs, contact Stacy Teknasik at (970) 339-6397 or visit www.aims.edu/academics/ems.
