The ambulance simulator will be used to add a higher level of realism to training scenarios. One of the most important aspects of the job for an EMT is knowing exactly how to perform their learned skills inside of an ambulance. It’s crucial that students understand how ambulance vehicles work and how to work safely while inside of one.
“The simulator will better educate students by taking them out of their classroom seats and giving them hands-on practice in the ambulance simulator before practicing their skills in the clinical setting,” explained Jim Jones, EMS Program Director. “The students can learn in a safe, realistic, and high-intensity environment.”
