Nevada Inaugural University Paramedic Class Graduates


| Thursday, October 15, 2009

LAS VEGAS Officials say an inaugural class of 20 new paramedics is graduating under a training partnership involving University Medical Center and the Clark County Fire Department.

Hospital officials say a Clark County Unified Paramedic Program graduation ceremony will be held Friday afternoon at the West Las Vegas Library.

Graduates will go on to work for Clark County fire and area ambulance services.

The eight-month program teaches trauma and lifesaving skills for use on patients ranging in age from children to adults in disasters and vehicle crashes.

UMC Trauma Services Director Gregg Fusto says the hospital partnership allows students to experience emergency services at the region's only top-level trauma and burn care centers.
