Collision Repair Students Help With Paramedic Lab Equipment
Freshmen in the Introduction to Repair Procedures course offered by the School of Transportation Technology's Collision Repair Program worked on a crash car Friday that will be used by Paramedic students.
The students reinstalled doors on the crash car, which is the passenger compartment of a compact car that has been placed on a rotisserie device. The rotisserie will allow instructors to tilt the vehicle as if it were on its side.
Paramedic students will practice extricating people from the car, which has a removable roof. The new Paramedic Lab, on the ground floor of the Klump Academic Center, also includes an ambulance with working lights and sirens and emergency-room booths.
Stephen T. Duna, instructor of collision repair, volunteered hours this summer to help prepare the crash car.
