Wayne County Office of Emergency Services has donated a vehicle to Wayne Community College for use in its Emergency Medical Services Program.
The 2002 ambulance will be used in stationary and driving training of emergency medical personnel.
The vehicle was delivered by Office of Emergency Services personnel and Wayne County Commissioner and WCC Trustee Wayne Aycock.
“We are grateful that the county could fulfill our request for a vehicle that students can use while training in our program,” said Renita Allen Dawson, associate vice president of Workforce Continuing Education. “Since WCC is the training source for future and current EMS workers, they had no problem cascading this vehicle down to us.”
WCC’s next emergency medical technician (EMT) classes are set to begin in August with both a day and an evening course scheduled. Anyone interested in becoming an EMT or paramedic should contact EMS Coordinator Kim Boswell at (919) 739-6893 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WCC is credentialed by the North Carolina Office of Emergency Medical Services as an EMS Educational Institution with approval to conduct initial training and continuing education for EMTs and paramedics.
