CCH Emergency Medical Services Employees Earn Intermediate EMT Certification 2018

GILLETTE, WY – Campbell County Health announces that six employees in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) earned their Intermediate Emergency Medical Technician Certification (EMT-I). Employees include:

  • Ashlee Keith, who has worked for CCH since April 2015
  • Lisa Konija, not pictured, who has worked for CCH since May 2016
  • Landon Suchor, who has worked for CCH since June 2014
  • Emily Stauffer, who has worked for CCH since November 2014
  • Wayce Waller, who has worked for CCH since February 2014
  • Krista Wanbaugh, who has worked for CCH since April 2015 in the ED
  • Also pictured is Jordon Roberts, who works in Moorcroft; and instructor Colleen Long, Paramedic, Campbell County Health EMS

This certification allows EMS to provide a more advanced level of care when it is needed throughout the Campbell County, Wyoming community. Advance EMTs are able to intubate, handle cardiac arrests (heart attacks) and do needle chest decompressions—thus making the transition of care easier for the patient when they arrive at the Emergency Department for further care.

Intermediate EMT certification requires 96 class hours, time in Surgery for three to five intubations, 36 hours of clinical time in the Emergency Department, and 36 hours of EMS ride time. Upon completion of this, EMT students must successfully complete a written and practical test from the Wyoming Department of Health Office of Emergency Medicine.
