UPDATE: Due to some scheduling conflicts, METS has changed the date of the Citizens Academy to April 16th.
The Citizens EMS Academy is a hands-on opportunity for community members to see and learn what METS Ambulance paramedics and emergency medical technicians do every day. Participants will have the opportunity to ride along with paramedics and EMTs on actual emergencies. The Citizen’s EMS Academy will educate participants about METS Ambulance and emergency medical services. Attendees will also learn skills they can use in an actual emergency.
The academy will be held every Thursday evening for 8 weeks, starting April 16th. Classes will be held at our main station, located at 625 S Virginia, Joplin, MO and will run from 6 PM to 9 PM.
