Penn College Receives Grant to Support Paramedic Camp

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

The EMT-Paramedic Camp, scheduled for June 16-17 for students entering grades nine to 12, is funded in part by a $1,500 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Health through the Lycoming County Department of Public Safety.

The camp introduces a variety of EMT-paramedic skills through hands-on workshops in a state-of-the-art paramedic and rescue facility.

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

The popular annual event is open to the first 20 students who register. Find out more online .
