KOROR (Press Release) — Palau Community College hosted the 3rd Emergency Medical Technician Training for eight weeks for Ministry of Justice law enforcement officers and Palau Public Utility Corporation safety officers.

The first EMT training was conducted at PCC for law enforcement officers from Division of Fire & Rescue-MOJ and Airport Rescue & Fire Fighting unit in October 2015 through collaborative efforts between Palau Community College, the Ministry of Justice, and the Ministry of Health.

The enactment of RPPL 10-9, which was signed by the President Tommy Remengesau in July 2017, requires training and certification of emergency ambulance service personnel including a well-equipped ambulance with all emergency medical supplies needed as required by regulation to be promulgated by the Ministry of Health.

As a result, the 2nd EMT training was conducted by LCDR Andreas Stiller from CAT Palau 133-27 and Edward Caballero from Kapio’lani Community College at PCC Continuing Education from November 2017 to February 2018 to train additional law enforcement officers from MOJ Division of Fire and Rescue.

Since then, two officers, Nathan Adelbai and Kayla Rebluud from the Division of Fire and Rescue attended EMT assistant instructor training at the University of Hawaii-Kapio’olani Community College from February to May, 2018 as part of train-the- trainer initiative.  This year’s training  will run from June 15 to August 14, 2018 and will cover didactic and clinical topics such as the Human Body, Lifespan Development, Pharmacology, Patient Assessment, Airway Management, Shock Management, BLS Resuscitation, Neurological Emergencies, and Endocrine and Hematology. Participants will learn to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities on medical and trauma patient; learning how to use appropriate equipment to clear human airway passage, breathing comfort, and air circulation. Participants will be able to demonstrate critical thinking skills by prioritizing and delegating on-scene patient management.
