Derry Rescue Squad offers medical responder course

The Londonderry Volunteer Rescue Squad will be offering an Emergency Medical Responder course beginning in late September.

Classes will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays from Sept. 25 through Dec. 19. at the Rescue Squad Building, 6068 Route 100 in Londonderry. State testing will follow.

The course consists of about 60 hours of classroom training and will be limited to 20 students who are at least 16 years old by Dec. 1, 2019.  It will cover basic patient care including the topics of Airway, Assessment, CPR, Medical Emergencies, Cardiac Emergencies, Trauma, Special Populations and EMS Operations.

This is an introduction to Emergency Medical Services for those who want to learn what to do in the case of a medical emergency and who would like to volunteer as licensed professionals.
