Humboldt General Hospital EMS Rescue will resume its educational courses
effective Monday, June 1, 2020.
According to HGH EMS Rescue Interim Education Coordinator Johnathen Prichard,
all community offerings will resume their pre-COVID-19 schedules, including
CPR AED courses beginning Wednesday, June 17, and continuing the first
and third Wednesdays of each month; Community CEU courses the first Saturday
of each month; and various other educational offerings.
Students are reminded to wear masks and to socially distance while participating
in courses at the HGH EMS Rescue American Heart Association CPR Training
Center. Class sizes will be limited to ensure appropriate occupancy rates.
Three years ago, HGH EMS Rescue achieved designation as an AHA CPR Training
Center, allowing the agency to join the world’s foremost authority
on resuscitation science, education, and training to teach lifesaving
skills to the residents of northern Nevada.
Shortly before the COVID-19, the American Heart Association renewed the
designation until 2031.
Prichard said HGH’s long-term relationship with the AHA not only
provides CPR-related education to healthcare professionals, industry and
laypersons, but also allows professionals to train instructors who can
go forward and educate the next generation of rescuers.
“The men and women of HGH EMS Rescue have put in countless hours
through this national public health emergency to keep our community safe,”
said Prichard. “Without the right education, skills and training,
they could not have served as effectively and successfully as they have.”
Prichard added, “We are excited to resume our course offerings and
invite our community to continue their own education and training.”
