CPR Event 1/27/23

Health Science and Fire Science at CHS hosted a CPR Event on Friday-1/27/23.  Students from Mrs. Jeffers and Mrs. Shanks’ classes, as well as Mr. Wood’s fire science students were able to sit for a CPR class and then practice their skills on the manikins.  Those that attended finished the day with a written test and became certified through the American Heart Association in BLS (Basic Life Support), which is now an industry certification. 
Several of our community healthcare professionals graciously volunteered their day to help with the CPR class. 

A special thank you to John Reeves-Fire Science and Paramedic Program Director for WSCC; Megan Rimer, RN  HCMH-ER; Steve Lawson-Paramedic; Ric Chapman-Lieutenant/Paramedic; and the crew from UT LIFESTAR-Mike Jones-Flight Paramedic, Joe Cate-Flight Paramedic, Summer Martin-Flight Nurse, Mark Forstner-Pilot.  Students were able to hear from the healthcare professional about their career experiences in the world of Emergency Medical Services.

Students had a very exciting visit from UT LIFESTAR,  as it landed on campus.  The students were able to visit with the crew and tour the helicopter.

Many thanks go out to our industry partners who gave their time to invest in these young Future Healthcare Professionals!  Thank you also to CHS Culinary students for the delicious breakfast and snacks for our guests.  It was a great day of learning!
