AAA To Fund Scholarships for EMTs and Paramedics in Nevada

Sep 11, 2013

AAA & NAEMT Foundation Partnership Will Support First Responders  
AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) Foundation have joined forces to provide educational programs that encourage and support careers in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) within the state of Nevada.
AAA donated $50,000 to the NAEMT Foundation at their annual meeting in Las Vegas, to create a unique pilot program that will support EMS education and training.  The funding will provide information to young adults about EMS careers, as well as create a scholarship program for career opportunities in EMS. With current and future retirement trends on the rise within EMS, the objective is to increase the number of EMS practitioners in Nevada.
