North Brookfield Savings Bank recently made a $2,500 donation to fund tuition costs of Ware High School students enrolling in an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training Program. The Bank holds the highest level of respect for those who work in public service and is proud to support those who make a big difference in our communities every day. This is just one reason why it is important to North Brookfield Savings Bank to support the next generation of these upstanding individuals.
Ware Public High School students that are enrolled in the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training, which is a Massachusetts Department of Public Health – OEMS accredited program, range from 17 to 18 years of age. The program consists of in-class content, discussion and online training, and is designed to prepare students for the challenging Massachusetts State Certification Examination. The classes prepares an excellent foundation in basic life support skills and techniques, patient assessment, CPR certification, and safe transportation. The students attend classes 3-4 times a week, from June 18th through August 31st at the Education to Employment (E2E) Quaboag Region Workforce Training and Community College Center, located at 79 Main Street in Ware.
The students’ interest in joining the public service sector was awakened when they recently completed a one-of-a-kind, yearlong “Introduction to Firefighting and EMS” course through Ware High School. The introductory course, developed collectively by the Ware Fire Department and Ware High School, was taught by Instructor and Ware Deputy Fire Chief / Director of Emergency Management Edward Wloch.
With the continued efforts made by the Ware Fire Department and Ware High School, Bay State Health Care systems committed to fund half of the students’ tuition costs for the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training, with North Brookfield Savings Bank providing $2,500 of the remaining tuition fees.
“North Brookfield Savings Bank is proud to support these dedicated and forward-looking students with their goal of having a career in public service,” said North Brookfield Savings Bank President and CEO Donna Boulanger. “By working together with others in our communities, our collective contributions made this EMT Training Program available to enthusiastic students who will undoubtedly make a positive impact within the local communities for years to come. We are proud of them for their commitment to their goals.”
