Students interested in a career in emergency services got a first hand look at what it takes on Friday.
Vertus High School students got to see a special rescue demonstration today. It took place in the parking lot of the school with a mock car crash and included the rescue of a test dummy from the vehicle.
The mock scenario included fire, EMS and police collaborating like they actually would at a crash site.
“Yes after seeing what they’re doing here today, I think I would want to be able to do that because knowing that you’re saving people’s lives is cool,” said 11th grader Ethan Miller.
The demonstration was for students who are currently taking an EMS enrichment course.
