If you see an ambulance at Black Hawk College, it’s no cause for alarm.

On Friday, April 4, 2014 a Health Care Program Career Exploration Event was scheduled from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., according to Public Relations Specialist Holly Smith. Instructors would be using the ambulance as part of the experience.

High school juniors and seniors from United Township, Rock Island, and Geneseo High Schools were expected to attend the event.

Students were set to get hands-on sessions to teach them therapy, nursing, and medical assisting. Students would also get the opportunity to learn how to draw blood using a fake arm.

The ambulance, which was planned to be outside of Building 3, would help highlight the emergency medical services (EMS) programs.
