JUNIOR PARAMEDIC PROGRAM ENROLLMENT OPENS

 

(Thu., May 3, 2012) − The Honolulu Emergency Services Department will present the Junior Paramedic Program in two sessions this summer.

 

            The Junior Paramedic Program offers students an opportunity to learn lifesaving skills, experience emergency response practices, and appreciate the duties of the City and County of Honoluluís emergency professionals.  Students receive classroom and hands-on mentoring during the two-week course and will achieve CPR and first aid certification.  It is hoped that this program will inspire students to consider a career as a first responder or in a related field, and to work for the City.

 

            The program is open to teens ages 14 through 18.  Only 20 students will be accepted for each session and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Sessions will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

       Session 1:  Monday June 18, 2012 - Friday June 29, 2012

       Session 2:  Monday July 9, 2012 - Friday July 20, 2012

 

            The deadline to apply is Friday, June 1, 2012.  Call the Honolulu Emergency Services Department at 723-7809 to enroll.
