Ever wonder if the Emergency Services career field is the right one for you? This hands-on workshop may be just what you need to help make that final decision. Youth will try skills or tasks used in these careers on a daily basis. Professionals in these careers will work directly with them so the youth can easily ask questions and get the most fullfilling experience possible.
Below are the careers being covered and just a couple of the topics. Students will be asked to pick a career to focus on in the morning and in the afternoon we will all come together to do a group activity and also use the skills they learned from the morning and be a part of a real mock crash and help the professionals walk through what exactly would happen during a real crash scene.
