Approximately 30 EMS personnel are expected to attend this year’s event.
“We continually strive to build stronger and more efficient regional emergency medical services capabilities,” states Ann Smith, FDRHPO’s North Country EMS Program Agency Director. “We are so pleased to be able to offer this much-anticipated event again this year. It is always well-attended and well-received by our EMS community, and it is always exciting to see our military and civilian EMS providers learning and training side-by-side, sharing their knowledge and experiences.”
Fort Drum’s Bridgewater-Vaccaro Medical Simulation Training Center (MSTC) provides realistic medical training to both medical and non-medical Soldiers. It offers hands on instruction on the latest battlefield trauma and critical care techniques.
