Newnan Fire Department Participates in EMT Training at Central Education Center

Driver Engineer Bart Henson will be joining the paramedic class at the Central Education Center on Tuesday, February 23rd. Henson will be instructing the incident command scenario during the class for students. The scenario will be a welding shop explosion and the aftermath. EMT students will be able to see what is expected and can ask questions during the class.

“This is a great hands-on opportunity for students to learn about incident command scenarios, said Driver Engineer Bart Henson. This gives them a chance to see what it is like in a controlled situation. When you are out on the scene is when this training kicks into gear.”

“Anytime we get an opportunity to teach the next generation of firefighters and EMT’s is a great thing, says Newnan Fire Chief David Whitley.
