Emergency Medical Services - Paramedicine
The current EMS Paramedic student cohort group independently decided to take up a collection amongst themselves and paramedic faculty to provide an unfortunate family with holiday gifts and food. The CWU EMS Club donated $100 toward this cause, yielding a $400 total donation. Two of the students that spearheaded this effort took the $400 and purchased gifts and clothing, as well as food and meal certificates for a single father family with five children. The holiday donation was delivered by a community support agency on the students' behalf just before Christmas. EMS students and faculty conducted over 250 electrocardiogram assessments in combination with cardiologists and ultrasonographers at Ellensburg High School as part of a "hidden cardiac events" screening called "Nick of Time". This event was motivated by an Ellensburg High School student that suffered cardiac arrest at a competitive event. Below is an excerpt from a recent communique:
