Congratulations to the 11 EMT's with Silver Spring Ambulance that successfully completed the 16-hour International Trauma Life Support course this weekend. This internationally recognized course features a rigorous curriculum to educate providers in the assessment and treatment of patients with traumatic injuries. Special thanks to New Kingstown Fire Company for allowing us to utilize their facility for the weekend and the entire instructional staff.  A trauma class is never complete without "victims".    We were fortunate enough to have a total of 5 area Boy Scouts from the New Birth of Freedom Council, BSA volunteer to assist us.
