Medicine Days Teach Students First Aid

Posted: Updated:

High-schoolers from across the state got first hand experience in emergency medical training this afternoon. The Missouri River Area Career and Technology Center hosted Emergency Medicine Day at the Bismarck Executive Air tarmac.  

Students received their first aid certification and learned about being a flight nurse, paramedic and an EMT. Students found out what it takes to care for someone while flying hundreds of miles from the ground.

"Very, very inquisitive. And they are asking a lot of great questions about the career and about what we do. How we fly our patients from point A to point B, and take care of them on the aircraft," says Bismarck Air Medical Manager Keith Peterson.

This is the first of two Emergency Medicine Days, another group of students interested in medicine will go tomorrow from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
