Paris EMS recently visited the Health Science classes at Paris High School for Stop the Bleed training, first aid, and touring the MICU. Students learned how to stop bleeding in emergencies by wound packing, applying pressure, and using tourniquets, and they toured the ambulance. While touring the ambulance, they saw demonstrations on how they equip it and what they use the equipment for in emergencies.
“Getting hands-on experience can be crucial for students interested in healthcare or emergency response careers,” expressed Lana Cashion, health science instructor. “It’s great to see practical learning opportunities like this for our students.”
