Service Description

Nationally, Fire and EMS services are increasingly being exposed to “High Threat” scenarios such as violent crime, active shooter, bombings and disaster response. Traditionally the assumption has been specially trained EMS or Law Enforcement personnel would deploy to treat and manage these incidents. However, a review of high threat incidents over the last ten years indicates the responder on shift or volunteer is treating the majority of patients generated by these incidents. This one-day class provides awareness level education for the responder who answers the call daily. This course includes the following: WHEN: February 28, 2023 08:30 - 17:00 WHERE: Emergency Services Training Center,1705 W 2nd Ave Eugene, OR 97402 COST: $10 CLASS SIZE: Limit 20 Students INSTRUCTOR: Deputy Chief Chris Heppel, Eugene Springfield Fire Officer Ryan Burke, Eugene Police QUESTIONS?
