KACC Fire-Rescue-EMS Students

Not Your Normal Friday the 13th!

Friday, April 13th was a lucky day for KACC Fire-Rescue-EMS Students.  They had an opportunity to attend the 2018 Fire/EMS Jamboree at the Fox Valley Career Center. 

This annual event allows students from numerous Illinois Career Centers to meet one another, network, and train under realistic emergency conditions.  Students selecting the EMS tract received instruction and performed emergency medical procedures in such as: bleeding control, airway management, 12-Lead EKG application and interpretation, capnography, drug dosages and administration, and patient assessment. 

Students who selected the fire tract performed: pitched roof ventilation, forcible entry, hose loads and deployments, ladder raises, and search and rescue.  They learned about fire behavior and extinguished car fires and flammable liquid fires.
