EMS MOBILE SIMULATION LAB
In response to the need for a new mobile simulation lab for EMS students at Beaufort County Community College, PotashCorp donated $18,500 toward the purchase of an ambulance. The mobile simulation lab enables EMS students to practice treating patients on the highway under realistic ambulance conditions. It allows students to become more comfortable practicing technical life-saving skills during their initial training at BCCC and during monthly continuing education classes. Instructors can stop a scenario and students can repeat a procedure until they show that they can do it safely and efficiently under stressful, simulated conditions. This mobile classroom can be driven to the various EMS departments in BCCC’s service area and used for training.
