Montgomery Middle School Students Welcome Emergency Medical Techs

Montgomery Middle School students got an up close look at careers in emergency medicine recently when they were visited by local emergency medical technicians.

With the students researching health careers, the recent visit by San Diego Project Heart Beat, which provides community education about careers in the health sector, was especially timely.

The students enthusiastically asked the EMTs questions about their profession and were given a firsthand look at the environment inside an ambulance.

Before the EMTs visit, students in the career class tirelessly worked to understand the importance of first aid response and cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). They learned that, by being well prepared for emergency situations, they have the potential to make the difference between life and death.

In each week of the course, which is being piloted at Montgomery, students learn about a different specialized career in health or technology and discover what skills and education are necessary to become a professional in that area. Montgomery Middle is committed to inspiring its students to be the leaders of tomorrow by learning more about careers in science today.
