attended class in Savannah two days a week and performed clinical training
at several hospitals and EMS agencies in Georgia and the Lowcountry.

at Fire-Rescue while attending the school,” McRoy said.
The training includes instruction in ECG interpretation, pharmacology,
anatomy and physiology, respiratory care, advanced trauma and medical care,
as well as obstetrics. The personnel performed hands-on training at the
