Morgan County Ambulance is a state certified training center for Emergency medical training. We provide in house training for our staff as well as other first responding agencies in the county when requested. We provide monthly training lectures. We also have guest speakers brought in for the one hour lecture at our semi annual staff meetings. These classes are open to anyone needing the continuing education hours.
Morgan County Ambulance, Colorado Plains Medical Center, Morgan Community College, and the Northeast regional trauma advisory council (NERTAC) hold an annual Trauma Symposium providing a day of lectures and hands on training free to anyone wishing to attend.
Through NERTAC, we provide yearly classes in ACLS, PALS, Paramedic Refresher and many others.
Members of the service are also provided with the education needed to maintain their minimum certification requirements. (ACLS, PALS, NRP, ATLS, ABLS, PHTLS, ABLS, etc.) CPR, First Responder and EMT classes are available to members of the Cadet Program.
Morgan County Ambulance is also very active in public education. Our employees teach public classes in CPR and advanced first aid, baby sitter classes, and safety and awareness classes to local school children. In 2006, Morgan County Ambulance was also instrumental in placing Automatic External Defibrillators in every school in Morgan County. In addition to this, the staff also trained school faculty and staff in CPR and how to use the defibrillators. Later that same year, we offered free CPR classes to local Spanish speaking community members.
