Amarillo Fire and Amarillo College are teaming up to provide training to students and firefighters to teach instruction. and procedure.
A recent influx of students and the need for paramedic training has A.C professors asking for help.
Now, already trained firefighters will work alongside AC professors to teach a class to both the community college students and Amarillo firefighters to further their education in paramedics.
The agreement will have an initial three-year term and should be a win-win for the city.
Both AC and AFD say this arrangement has a positive outcome for everyone.
27 members of the Amarillo Fire Department are currently going through paramedic school to better serve the Panhandle.
The class will take place at Amarillo College’s west campus with a hybrid option to accommodate the firefighter’s schedule.
