Four County Career Center Adult Workforce Education Public Safety Programs recently received two pre-owned ambulances from ProMedica Transport Network (PTN) a division of ProMedica.
The Career Center and PTN relationship began eight years ago when the Public Safety Administrative team began working with PTN to provide employees a chance to become Paramedics. This collaboration has blossomed into continued Paramedic classes and many new endeavors to meet the needs of healthcare employees and to increase the care given to community residents.
Both institutions are firm believers in giving back to the communities they serve. When the ambulances from ProMedica were being replaced, Jack Morasch, Executive Director of PTN, contacted Dan Frederick, Public Safety/Allied Health Coordinator, about the donation to the Career Center.
“I was ecstatic with the call from Jack,” stated Dan. “This will provide all the students in Public Safety an enhancement to their education by providing real life experience using the EMS rigs. The squads will play a significant role in simulation, which is leading a new frontier in education.”
“ProMedica Air and Mobile is proud to be able to supplement the Career Center’s commitment to hands-on, real-life training for EMS students,” Jack commented. “The more realistic training that EMS students receive, the better care provider they will become in the future.”
Doug Beck, Adult Education Director commented, “This donation is truly valuable to each institution and most of all to the students who will be delivering the pre-hospital care in our area. These squads are top-notch and well maintained.”
The Career Center is also appreciative to John’s Towing & Repair in Bryan & Defiance for their continued support to the education of students and the community. They donated their time and staff to see that each ambulance was delivered to both the Arrowhead and Archbold Four County campuses. “This was a huge cooperative endeavor in all aspects and a huge Thank You goes out to John’s Towing for providing their time and service,” commented Beck.
