In an effort to educate the community and encourage individuals who may be interested in the EMS career field, Davie County Emergency Medical Services is launching the Davie County EMS Academy.

Ten sessions will include education in CPR, fire safety, basic medical, bleeding control, trauma and more. Participants will have the opportunity to learn through hands-on activities, tour an AirCare helicopter, visit the Davie County 911 Center, participate in a class geared towards traffic accidents and gain a better understanding for what role a community paramedic serves.

Classes begin Oct. 18 and run from 7-9 p.m. at 114 Dr. Slate Drive in Mocksville.  Individuals who are ages 15 years and older may participate.  They will receive certifications in CPR and bleeding control.
