St. Mary's Fire/Rescue Cadet Class
By Ryan DeGruy
Each morning 23 students from the St. Mary’s County Schools gather at the Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center for a relatively unusual class. In this class students learn medical skills such as how to treat a patient with a severe bleed or a patient who isn’t breathing and other skills such as how to remove a trapped person from a vehicle or how to save each other if trapped in a burning building. This is all a part of the one year long Fire and Rescue Emergency Medical Services program offered through the St. Mary’s County Public Schools and Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute of the University of Maryland. The program consist of over 138 hours of classroom instruction as well as formal hands-on training at various training sites. The students have already completed Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) and Firefighter 1 and are currently in Hazardous Materials Operations. Additionally the students will get training in Incident Management System, Emergency Response to Terrorism, Firefighter 2, and Rescue Operations. Many of the classes are eligible for college credit and can earn national certification.
