Point to Point: What’s It Like to Be an Emergency Medical Service Professional?
Grades: 1 - 12

Video Description: This program can be targeted to three grade levels, each with a different emphasis.

For grades 1 through 4, the experts will discuss Community Helpers, providing basic information about their role in communities, and teach basic safety information.

For grades 5 through 12, you may choose a focus on what it’s like to be an EMS.  This program focuses on learning what it’s like to be in this field.  The experts will take students through an entire call, from being dispatched to the resolution.  Included will be a tour of the truck and equipment, information on how to assess and treat a patient, the teamwork involved, and the importance of education.

For a higher-level session for grades 5 through 12, consider a focus on how to think like an EMS.  This session focuses on assessing and evaluating situations to see what may not be easily apparent but is important.  Students will learn more about evaluating and reacting to emergencies, what to do while waiting for help and how to protect themselves, both physically and emotionally while dealing with an emergency.
