Twenty recruits graduate from the Hall EMT Academy


Program Provides Career-Path and Self Sufficiency

Twenty recruits from Class 32 of the Hall EMT Academy graduated on Tuesday, March 7, at the Party Palace Reception Hall, 930 19th Street, with friends and family members in attendance to help celebrate their accomplishments.

The Hall EMT Academy is not just a school, but a pathway to starting their EMS career at Hall Ambulance.

Recruits are full-time employees who learn everything they need to get started working as an emergency medical technician in the Hall Ambulance 9-1-1 system.

During six weeks of intensive classroom training, the recruits were introduced to the entire spectrum of EMS care including airway, respiration & ventilation; cardiology & resuscitation; trauma; and EMS operations. Upon completion of the coursework, they prepared for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians exam.

The new EMTs are currently undergoing six weeks of field training on advanced life support ambulances. Once they have successfully fulfilled all objectives, they will then be eligible to begin working in the Hall Ambulance system, assigned to either a Basic Life Support or Advanced Life Support ambulance.

Opportunity for the graduates does not stop there. Hall Ambulance Service has developed a proven career path in which a motivated employee can fast track their EMS career starting with the Hall EMT Academy, followed by Company-sponsored paramedic school at Bakersfield College, and the opportunity to promote to a paramedic field supervisor or leadership position.
