College Receives Grant Funding for EMT-Paramedic Camp

Pennsylvania College of Technology has received a grant to support a summer camp for secondary school students interested in careers in emergency medical services.

The EMT-Paramedic camp, scheduled this June, is funded in part by a $1,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Health through the Lycoming County Department of Public Safety.

The weekend camp introduces students entering grades nine to 12 to a variety of EMT-paramedic skills through hands-on workshops in state-of-the-art paramedic and rescue facilities.

Participants also have opportunities to interact with Penn College students and faculty, as well as Susquehanna Health and Geisinger Life Flight paramedics.

The popular camp, now offered for the third year, is open to 40 students and has already been filled to capacity.
