Preparing To Comfort Accident Victims

By  | 

When emergency personnel are working to free car accident victims, someone has to make sure the victims stay calm.

On Saturday Blinn College in Bryan held their fall semester Extrication Day.

It was an opportunity for Emergency Medical Services Program students to receive crucial instructions from PHI Air Medical professionals and members of the Bryan Fire Department on proper rescue procedures.

By learning what's involved in the rescue process, students will be able to explain the steps to accident victims as emergency crews are working.

John Tuohy is the EMS Clinical Coordinator at Blinn College and says by exposing EMS students to demonstrations gain a more in depth understanding of emergency situations that the classroom can't offer them.

The students at Saturday's Extrication Day will soon be graduating as Emergency Medical Technicians.
