    The Covert Township Fire Department is offering an EPC course on Tuesday 3-13-2018 0800-1600. This will be a Hybrid style course in which the students will complete 8 hours of online training prior to attending the one day skills and scenario day.

    NAEMT's Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC) course focuses on the care of sick and injured children, addressing a full spectrum of emergency illnesses, injuries and scenarios that an EMS practitioner might encounter. The course provides an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiology of the most common pediatric emergency issues, and stresses critical thinking skills to help practitioners make the best decisions for their patients.

    EPC uses the Pediatric Assessment Triangle (PAT) as a tool to help EMS practitioners rapidly and accurately assess pediatric patients and incorporates family centered care throughout all scenarios. Training encompasses lectures, hands-on skills practice and small group critical thinking discussions.

    Topics include: understanding kids; airway, breathing and oxygenation; cardiac emergencies; child abuse and neglect; common medical emergencies; the importance of family; hypoperfusion and shock; newborn resuscitation; pediatric trauma; and special health care needs.

    There are 16 pre-approved CEU credits for MFR, EMT-B, Specialist and Paramedics. Register early as seating is limited. Course cost is $200.00.
