MCI Training

About the GCEMS Education Division

The Education Division at Grand County EMS plays many roles within the department. As medicine is always changing and advancing, EMS providers must stay up to date. Continuing Education is offered regularly within the department, facilitated both by our Educators and through external training partners. Recent trainings offered to GCEMS staff include: Beyond the BVM ventilator management course, IAMed CCT course, NEMSMA FTEP, a full-scale active shooter MCI drill through Louisiana State University, Neonatal Resuscitation Provider and more. Additionally, GCEMS staff have the opportunity to attend the EMSAC conference each year, as well as national conferences to ensure we provide the highest quality care to our community. 

The Education Division also spearheads continuous quality improvement and quality assurance initiatives.
