There were no sirens, but Crafton Hills College (CHC) had a special ambulance visit. American Medical Response (AMR) donated an ambulance to CHC’s Emergency Medical Services Department for instructional purposes.
AMR’s Redlands, CA Division has had a long partnership with Crafton Hills College, providing preceptors for its emergency medical technician students for more than 20 years. AMR also represents the transportation industry as a member of CHC’s Emergency Medical Technician Advisory Committee, bringing recommendations that support and improve the student learning experience.
"I thank the generosity of AMR for the donation of the ambulance," said June Yamamoto, Dean of Career Education and Human Development." It will be a great asset for the students." The ambulance will be used to train students in emergency operations, ambulance safety, loading and unloading of patients, and the ability to monitor vital signs in a moving ambulance.
