PVCC’s New Promo Ambulance Aims to Inspire Future Lifesavers

Get ready for a ride like no other, as Paradise Valley Community College (PVCC) unveils its mobile billboard – a promotional-wrapped ambulance spotlighting the college’s nationally recognized emergency medical technology (EMT) and paramedicine programs. Both state and nationally accredited programs give students an upper advantage in entering their chosen career paths, with high-level classes and training necessary for working in emergency medical services. 

“The ambulance serves as a powerful symbol of the exciting opportunities in this line of work,” said Kevin Taussig, EMT and paramedicine program director. “It will allow our students to hone their skills in the educational setting, while also providing real life, hands-on experience, allowing them to seamlessly transition after graduation into emergency medicine.”

“PVCC is just one of a few select programs in the state that has an emergency vehicle. The ambulance, donated by American Medical Response (AMR), allows us to mobilize our programs, taking theory into the practical setting,” said Dr. Sandra Hinski, interim vice president of Academic Affairs. 

PVCC’s EMT and Paramedicine programs are tailored for students seeking a solid footing in their pursuit of becoming emergency medical professionals. The program, which includes classroom and laboratory instruction, as well as hospital clinical rotations and field internships, is led by experienced instructors and dedicated staff with countless years of combined experience in the field.
