First Responder Training Available for GTCERT Volunteers
 
August 6, 2013 - There is going to be a First Responder class held at Tampa Fire Rescue Training which is located at 116 S. 34th Street Tampa, FL 33605.  First Responder training is a nationally recognized program that teaches in-depth first aid and emergency medical techniques. A First Responder is a member of the EMS (Emergency Management System) who has been trained to render first aid and emergency care for a patient and to assist EMTs at the scene of an emergency. First Responders can serve as additional assets to a community's EMS by recognizing a medical emergency and alerting the EMS. In addition, First Responders can provide emergency care to the patient in those critical minutes until the paid responders arrive.

The class will run for 5 weeks and meet on the following dates:

Thursday August 22nd from 5:30pm to 10:00pm
Saturday August 24th from 8:30am to 5:00pm
