May 2012 Team Training

The May team training brought the annual medical extravaganza. It is a chance to apply newly learned skills for those who recently completed Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) training, and an equally important refresher for those who have been on the team for years. The event was held at a new location this year, thanks to the cooperation and generosity of the city of Pinole.

This hands-on training is as real as it gets without getting into an actual emergency. Stations covered triage, patient packaging, extrication, splinting, bandaging, and a variety of other medical scenarios. Put together this year by Caroline Thomas Jacobs, pictured below, the training was a huge success.
