Volunteer emergency medical technicians sought for classes

TOWSON -- County officials are seeking volunteers interested in training as emergency medical technicians.

Those who take the four-monthlong course will receive classroom instruction, learn how to drive an emergency vehicle, and work alongside members of a volunteer fire company. Participants must be interested in health care, have a high school or general equivalency diploma, and pass a physical exam and background check.

Graduates will be eligible to work for fire departments, ambulance companies, hospitals, nursing homes and medical laboratories. Orientation classes begin Sept. 10. Information: 410-853- 0884.

FOR THE RECORD - A brief in yesterday's editions of The Sun included an incorrect phone number for a program that will train those on public assistance to be emergency medical technicians. The correct number is 410-853-3884. The brief also should have said that volunteers must be welfare recipients. The Sun regrets the errors.
