LOWVILLE- Lewis County Search & Rescue will be hosting an upcoming EMT course beginning Monday, August 17 and interested participants are encouraged to sign up.
"If you are part of a transporting EMS agency (I.E: Fire department or stand alone agency), the cost for the class itself is nothing, it's free," Chief of Operations Josh Levesque told us. "What we look for and what it takes to be an EMT is an individual who has a desire to help their community."
The class will run in-person Monday's and Wednesday's from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. with "a couple of Saturday's scheduled in there for things like CPR, lab time and things like that."
In the event of a COVID-19 spike within the county and the in-person class could no longer continue, Levesque tells us the course will still be available online so "we can go back and still continue the class."
For more information and to sign up, call Lewis County Search & Rescue at 315-376-7745.
