EMTs and Medics don’t train until they get it right.

                                                                 They train until they can’t get it wrong.

In Field Training

Providers and Drivers work under the supervision of preceptors, or senior crew members, to develop their skills in real patient care scenarios before they are allowed to practice independently.

Scenario Training

Harpur’s Ferry members are exposed to a wide variety of scenario training to develop critical thinking and to prepare them for real patients both before being allowed in the field and to maintain skills during their career at HF.

Continuing Education

Providers spend their first semester in HF in the AFAEC class, and members continue their education through continuing education programs to maintain their knowledge and skills.
