4/19/2010 —

Penn State Mont Alto and the Pennsylvania Institute of Applied Health Sciences are partnering to provide a trauma-scenario training exercise for their students to be held Wednesday, April 28 from 8-10 a.m. at Penn State Mont Alto. The Penn State Hershey LifeLion helicopter, Blue Ridge Summit Fire, Mont Alto EMS,  the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry Lifelion, Franklin County EMA and the Mont Alto Fire Department will assist in the exercise.

Penn State Mont Alto’s freshman forest technology students and the paramedic students from the Pennsylvania Institute of Applied Health Sciences will gain hands-on training responding to a trauma scenario in the woods adjacent to the campus. In addition, Penn State Mont Alto’s nursing faculty will facilitate the use of iStan in the exercise; he is the department’s new mobile human simulation patient.
