Class 45 Graduation

After ten weeks of full-time, intensive training, eleven recruits graduated from Class 45 of the Hall EMT Academy.  The ceremony took place on Tuesday, December 19 at 3 p.m. at The Collective, 931 19th Street in downtown Bakersfield.

EMTs work on the front line of emergency medical services.  They provide or assist with patient care and safe transport to the hospital by ambulance.

Established in 2001, the Hall EMT Academy provides individuals with free, paid training as they prepare to become emergency medical technicians.  Upon completing the program, they are guaranteed a full-time position with Hall Ambulance, where they will respond to 9-1-1 calls for medical aid as Kern County first responders.

Training began on September 12 at the Harvey L. Hall EMS Academy and covered company orientation, healthcare provider CPR, and the EMT course in which they were taught about patient assessments, airway management, pharmacology, shock & resuscitation, medical and trauma emergencies, mass casualty incidents, and more.

All 11 students passed the rigorous NREMT Exam on their first attempt and are currently obtaining their state and county EMT certificates.  They will soon begin five weeks of on-the-job training with a field training officer.

The starting wage for a new Hall EMT is $43,825.60/year, plus an extensive benefits package.
