SOUTH EASTON — Juniors in Southeastern’s Nurse Assisting vocational program recently visited Brewster Ambulance Service to learn about the many opportunities available to them in the industry.
During their visit, students learned about careers with ambulance providers, such as EMTs, paramedics, nurses, mechanics and Ambulance Transport Specialists (ATS), as well as administrative roles such as billing.
They also learned about Brewster Ambulance’s partnerships with regional hospitals, and its Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support services.
Brewster Ambulance also provides 911-call emergency response to towns and municipalities throughout the greater Boston area. Students learned about the 911 Silent Procedure and the online SMART911 for Brockton residents.
The group also heard about Brewster’s work providing COVID-19 vaccinations at many municipal and school vaccine clinics, as well as the company’s education center for EMTs and ATS training.
The group was hosted by Director of Human Resources Adam Brewster, Education Manager Cheryl Agnew and Field Training Coordinator/Instructor Ben Boossarangsi.
“We are so fortunate to have many businesses and organizations in the area that are willing to host our students to share with them information and opportunities in their vocational field,” said Nurse Assisting Instructor Nanci Munro. “Our students were grateful for this opportunity to learn about this family owned and operated business that cares for their employees and contributes invaluable services to their community.”
