Desire to Serve, Ability to Perform
First Training Days Event
As a result of visits with EMS personnel, Ambulance
Directors, and Medical Directors across the region,
Dr. Thompson recognized the need for more skills
training and practice opportunities for EMS
personnel, especially those in outlying areas where
call volumes are low and long distances make it a
challenge to do ride-alongs with busier agencies.
On August 9-10, almost all SLV ambulance agencies
participated in our first Training Days event. It was
designed to provide practice in a variety of skills --
with CEU's to boot, as well as lunch cooked by Jon
on the barbeque and a chance to get to know EMS
personnel from around the Valley.
The lessons learned from this first event will help us plan future training events.
