It was an impressive sight as students from Chino HS arrived by bus to American Medical Response (AMR) - Rancho Cucamonga, dressed in blazers, button down shirts, and ties. Dressing for success is part of the training that IHPC provides to students who participate in a health site visit. While at the facility, students participate in mock job interviews and visit each department to get an overall understanding of AMR's operations. Each stop in the tour allows for questions and answers and concludes with a chance to climb inside of an ambulance while EMT personnel patiently explain the equipment and functions. Students listened carefully as AMR ambassador, Robert Coster gave a presentation on the many access points into an EMT career with ambulance company. 

Wow, I did not know AMR paid for the paramedic course if I were to become employed with them. I am so glad I came to this site visit!

At the close of the site visit, both Robert Coster and Andy Serobyan taught the students hands-only chest compressions (shown above). It was another successful visit and ROP instructor Corey Lynch and his EMR students were so thankful for the amazing opportunity!

 Students practice proper technique for hands-only chest compressions.
