American Medical Response (AMR) will host its second annual AMR National Competition in Denver, Colo., on Monday, June 13, 2011. In this national event, a select group of AMR’s top caregivers will compete in a safety and clinical skills competition.
The competition will test the skills of paramedics and EMTs from AMR locations across the country. The event simulates situations that caregivers encounter on a daily basis. It includes a timed driving course that measures the caregivers’ abilities to safely and efficiently operate an ambulance while providing care to a mannequin simulating a patient in need of emergency medical services. Trauma and other medical scenarios will be conducted in indoor professional simulation settings as part of the competition.
American Medical Response Inc. is America’s leading provider of medical transportation, providing services in 40 states and the District of Columbia. AMR is a subsidiary of Emergency Medical Services Corporation, headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colo.
Monday, June 13, 2011, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Community College of Aurora’s Center for Simulation will host this national event. AMR caregivers will utilize the college’s nationally renowned EMS simulation studios—which replicate a residence, an industrial site, and other settings—and employ its state-of-the-art training mannequins. They will also use CCA’s Disaster Management Institute’s fully functional operations center, which employs some of the most advanced control room technology available. The Center is on the Lowry Campus, 9235 E. 10th St., Bldg. 859, Denver, CO 80230.
