The Granby Ambulance Association congratulates this year’s EMT program graduates! These 12 students have dedicated the last five months to studying emergency medicine, which included observing and caring for patients in the St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center Emergency Department, and spending dozens of hours assisting with patient care in the back of Granby’s ambulances. This year’s class included students from East Hartland, Granby, Simsbury, Somers, Stafford Springs, Suffield and Tariffville. They represented the East Hartland Volunteer Fire Department, Granby Ambulance Association and the Somers Fire Department. Successful completion of the course means the students are ready to sit for the national and state practical and written exams for certification. Congratulations and good luck! We hope to see you all volunteering at Granby Ambulance Association soon!

The next EMT class will begin in the fall. Anyone interested can find information at www.granbyambulance.org.
