Emergency Medical Responder Camp: July 21-26, 2019
Rising 11th – 12th Grade + Rising College Freshmen
For anyone interested in a field of emergency medicine, or in serving on the response team as a non-EMS responder in the government, corporate, law enforcement, or corrections field, the Emergency Medical Response course provides invaluable skills and knowledge to help responders appropriately help at the scene of an emergency. This team-based, interactive course covers topics such as medical terminology, effective communication, and basic patient assessment techniques. Campers will learn how to take vitals, proper lifting and moving skills, in addition to treatment for a variety of common emergencies. Campers will also earn their healthcare-level American Heart Association Basic Life Support certification.
This camp is made possible through a partnership with CarePoint Resources. It is led by active and experienced Paramedics with additional insight provided from local leaders in the field of emergency medicine. Upon completion, participants will be certified for 2-years in ASHI Emergency Medical Response and AHA Basic Life Support. While this training is not intended to cross into the EMS field, it provides an excellent foundation for those serving in a non-EMS role, or who may one day enter the field of EMS.
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
Classes will take place in the newly renovated Mell Classroom Building. It is within walking distance from dorms, dining facilities, and other Auburn University Schools and Colleges.
