The profession of emergency paramedic has only existed since 2014. Emergency paramedics are trained for three years and are the highest non-medical qualification in the German rescue service. Today, they take care of many emergency patients independently, such as administering pain medication. They also provide complex life-saving measures, e.g. administering emergency medication in the event of a heart attack, until an emergency doctor arrives. High-quality and intensive training is therefore necessary to fulfill this task profile.

The current class of emergency paramedics will complete their training in September 2022. In preparation for the upcoming state examination and the demanding everyday working life, an action day was held at the AGNF at the end of June. The students of the final year each occupied an ambulance in threes and had to deal with different missions in the city area, accompanied and observed by their practical instructors and the teachers of the vocational school. The simulated missions are then evaluated and debriefed with the team.

Such a training day offers the unique opportunity to experience school and work in a safe environment and still have to work independently. We were supported in the organization of the action day by the rescue services of the BRK, the JUH and the ASB, who provided emergency vehicles. In addition, the town of Stein provided premises to enable operations to be carried out at real locations. The Stein fire department supported the day of action with personnel and equipment. A total of over 50 people were involved.
