Redefining the Classroom

Paramedic students benefit from LSSU, Sault Fire Department partnership

Posted: August 2nd, 2014

BACKWARDS TRAVELER – Lake Superior State University fire science student Bryn Lymburner backs an ambulance through 300 cones spread throughout a quarter-acre course July 31 on LSSU's campus. Dozens of EMS skills like this were offered to students and regional first-responders during a two-week paramedic academy conducted by Lake State in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Lymburner and 21 fellow criminal justice/fire science students will use the training to graduate as certified paramedics. The ambulance is on loan from the Sault, Mich., fire department, as is paramedic/firefighter and 1999 LSSU alum Scott LaBonte, an adjunct instructor in LSSU's paramedic program. Lymburner is a fire science generalist major from St. Joseph, Mich. Run a Web search on "LSSU fire" for more on that area of study as Lake State. (LSSU/John Shibley)
