PJHS: Emergency Service Club

Ever hear sirens and wonder where they are going or what they are doing?

Well, now is your chance to find out!

We are starting an after-school club that will partner with local Emergency Services providers. We are looking for approximately 15-20 students who would like the opportunity to grow and develop while learning about our local Emergency Services Providers.

What's it like to be an EMT, Firefighter, or Police Officer? We will show you what a day in the life of these exciting careers while teaching valuable, lifesaving skills. Some students will have the opportunity to earn actual certifications in CPR, First Aide, and even become EMTs. We are partnering with our local police department, fire department, sheriff's office, and EMS to bring this all to you after school.

Meetings will be held from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM on Wednesdays in Room 140. We will have some outdoor days.

To sign up come see the Nurse-

Build self-confidence, learn valuable life skills, learn leadership skills, and see how things work in the real world!
