Derry opens up EMT recertification
Through December, department Emergency Services Director Charles Hemeon will provide the training for Derry firefighters. However, the council will allow people from outside the department to take the course for a $250 fee to help offset the cost of course materials.
“We have to put an outside limit of no more than eight people, with two additional people on each shift because of the size of the classroom and so that we give proper attention to our own students,” said Klauber. The class is being held at the department’s training facility at the Hampstead Road fire station.
“We have gotten some phone calls from a few individuals asking to take part, and we thought it would be appropriate to have some fees to offset the costs,” said Klauber. “It’s not a phenomenal amount of money, but it would help to offset some of the cost for materials.”
“Between now and Dec. 16, all shifts will be taking the course and will be prepared to be advanced Emergency Medical Technicians,” said Klauber.
