IVCC and La Salle team up for paramedic program

Posted by wlpo on July 11, 2011

It’s hard to learn a skill unless you practice.  EMT and paramedic students at Illinois Valley Community College will be receiving hands-on clinical experience from members of the La Salle Fire Department’s Ambulance Service.

The city and college have approved an agreement that allows students at IVCC that have met certain criteria ride along with La Salle’s paramedics.

Fire Chief Andy Bacidore says they’ve had students from other programs before.

The city council approved the agreement Monday night.  Alderman Diz Demes says it’s a great opportunity.
