EMS Academy Opens in Minnesota

ST. PAUL - A new Emergency Medical Services Academy will open doors for people from low-income households to careers in EMS and firefighting while helping St. Paul close the achievement gap for students of color and women.

The first-in-the-state program is a pilot that will pay 40 participants up to 25 hours a week while they go through one of two 10-week emergency medical technician certification programs.
