Avilla Firefighters To Become Certified

AVILLA – As of mid December, the Avilla Fire Department has eight students who have passed the Emergency Medical Responder course and will receive their state certification in early January.

Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs) have the proper training, knowledge and skills that are necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also give assistance to higher level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport.
