High School EMT Students Face Realistic Scenarios

Cypress Creek EMS coordinates high school EMT classes in the Klein, Spring, and Tomball school districts. The students will be taking their National Registry Tests on April 12. But first, Extrication Day.

Every CCEMS class whether it’s high school, adult EMT or adult Paramedic is put through Extrication Day. The students work through various realistic scenarios, including working along with a real fire department to extricate mock victims from wrecked cars. Thanks to Klein Fire Department for these pictures.

This time, the Klein Fire Department’s Rescue 33 handled the extrication duties using tools like the jaws of life to get the mock patients out of the junk vehicles we set up in the back parking lot of the CCEMS Education Center at 7111 Five Forks.¬† Extrication Day was held for 33 students from Klein and Tomball on Saturday, April¬† 2, 2016. Students are always treated to a visit from a medical helicopter from either Life Flight or PHI. Thanks to Instructor Jonathan Coyle and parent Tiffany Vanderhider for sharing your pictures.
