High School Partnerships
We have an outstanding partnership with HS2. Together we work to develop the best possible opportunities for high school students of all grades. We are dynamic in our partnership making changes as we see fit to best meet the needs and desires of our learners.
Each grade has a unique experience with Lake Country Fire Rescue & our Training Center.
Freshman are trained in CPR and have an 8 day workshop learning about the fire and ems field as a career along with hands on exposure to the skills they can learn should they continue.
Sophomores get to experience Life and the Firehouse which is a combination of 30 hours of ride along time at LCFR and 30 hours of hands on firefighting skills. Students learn everything from donning, search & rescue, force entry and fire attack.
Juniors get to take Emergency Medical Responder their spring semester. This course isn’t for certification as they are too young, but it serves as a great preparatory course for the EMT class they can take as a Senior.
Seniors spend their year in EMT. This rigorous course is truly designed for the High School student in mind. Our teaching styles, assignments and learning environment is catered to the younger learner. While National Registry testing is not required for the HS credit portion, many do go on to test and become a licensed EMT!
Our Arrowhead High School partnership started in 2017. The 2018/2019 school year we ran our first EMT cohort with 12 amazing students that are part of the Health Practicum at AHS.
We offer an introductory workshop for Health Practicum sophomores where they spend 5 days both at AHS and at the Training Center learning about the fire/ems field and get CPR trained.
The AHS Seniors have an opportunity to apply to take the EMT course.
We look forward to continue expanding our partnership with Arrowhead in the future!
