Hope Mitton and Nick Gliwa

Not as students, but as Guest Instructors

Nick Gliwa a 2019 student from KACC's Fire-Rescue-EMR program and graduate of Grant Park High School teamed up with  Hope Mitton, former KACC Certified Nurse Assistant/Medical Terminology student from Donovan High School class of 2020 to instruct Fire-Rescue-ERM students on how to treat hemorrhages.

Nick is a 9-1-1 dispatcher for Lake County, Indiana, and former member of the Grant Park Fire Protection District.  He is an American Heart Association BLS/ CPR/AED and First Aid instructor. 

Nick and Hope taught students how to pack wounds with gauze and hemostatic agents, apply pressure dressings, and use tourniquets on artificial arms and legs as imitation blood was flowing out of the wounds.
