SBC Houston - Houston Fire Department Ride Along

April 25, 2011 General, SBC-Houston 0 Comments

On April 18th – 21th, 2011, twenty SBC Health, MA students volunteered to ride along with the Houston Fire Department. They were assigned during the week, to various Fire Stations around the city of Houston. The students rode along to observe the work of the paramedics as they carry out their daily tasks.  The goal of this activity is to help our students gain self-confidence and sharpen skills that will help them succeed in their careers. Our students loved the opportunity to respond with the fire crews to various emergency scenes. The students were allowed to assist in non-emergency fire ground duties. They observe the paramedics performing CPR, oxygen administration, taking vital signs, and preparing patients for transport.
