Initiating IV therapy is one of the many advanced life support skills taught in the AEMT course. The AEMT course is not only a first for DSLCC, but also the first such course offered in the Virginia Community College System. Students who successfully complete the AEMT course will be eligible to apply for the EMT-Intermediate program at DSLCC, and will be eligible to sit for their National Registry certification exam this spring. Participating in this course are Thomas Andrews, Mathew Seldomridge, Jason Reynolds, Lindsay Cartwright and Morgan Murray. Andrews and Reynolds are members of the Falling Spring Rescue Squad; Seldomridge, Cartwright and Murray are all members of the Dunlap Rescue Squad. Both squads are located in Alleghany County. Applications for the Fall 2013 EMS Intermediate Program at DSLCC are now open; the deadline to apply is May 10 and limited space is available.
