Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support Training

WRHSAC is offering a session of Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support Training (PHTLS) at Easthampton Fire Department on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 23 and 24, 2024.

PHTLS is the premier pre-hospital trauma education developed in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons to promote critical thinking in addressing multi-system trauma and provide the latest evidence-based treatment practices. The program will strengthen the EMS providers’ assessment skills and techniques for managing patients in distress. The program is based on a pre-hospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs and has shown to improve the quality of trauma care in all patients and also decrease mortality.

This is a two-day, sixteen hour training for first responders who are EMT-B through EMT-P trained.

The training is free. OEMS credits will be provided.

Registration is required.

Thank you for your interest in the training. As of Tuesday, March 26, 2024 the training is full and the waitlist is at capacity.
