Change is the word for the New Castle Career Center Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program. In the fall of 2019, the EMT program relocated from the Danielson Center to the old Habitat for Humanity storefront on Broad Street. After a year of being in the new building, the program was gifted an ambulance simulator from the New Castle Henry County Economic Development Corporation and the Redevelopment Commission.
More changes are underway for the EMT program as they undergo a building renovation during the 2020-21 school year. The city of New Castle made the decision to move the New Castle Emergency Medical Services (EMS) into the EMT program facility. This means the facility will now house the Career Center EMT program, the adult EMT program, and the New Castle EMS.
“The renovations being made to the building will provide a first-class learning environment with an ambulance simulator that most EMT programs do not have,” explained EMT Instructor Bill Hufford.
The renovations to the facility will include more usable space, overhead projectors with dual screen capabilities, and an in-class ambulance simulator. By having the New Castle EMS and EMT program in the same building, students will have a more realistic hands-on approach to their education.
