Beacon Hose to Host Summer EMT Course

Beacon Hose will host a summer EMT course that will be perfect for high school and college students on summer break — enrollment is open now!

The course will run from June 19 through August 30. Classes will be held at Beacon Hose on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings (6-10 p.m. nightly) and three Saturdays (8 a.m.-4 p.m.). One of the Saturday classes will include a vehicle extrication drill with the fire department. The course will be taught by experienced ALS and BLS instructors who remain extremely active in responding to calls in our area.

The course fee is $1,000, which includes books (with online access), a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope, CPR/AED certification, EVDT certification, and the required sex trafficking and mental health courses.

This class is open to any Connecticut resident, not just those from Beacon Falls. While membership at Beacon Hose is not required, the course could lead to an opportunity to join our department, too! Becoming an EMT not only gives you lifesaving skills to help others, but it can also lead to rewarding career opportunities.
