EMS help to save lives everyday. Today the Nacogdoches County EMS learned how to do it more efficiently and faster. "These are the people that are going to be picking you up on the side of the road if you have a motor vehicle crash, if you have some type of medical emergency in your house and to make sure those responders are trained and ready to go at a moments notice," Greg Lamay, an instructor explained.
At Nacogdoches Memorial hospital the emergency personnel were dealing with simulated trauma situations. It's part of a grant program TXDOT is offering and the hospital received the money for the training. "What they do is they, through an application process, apply for fund that we have and then we go through those applications and decide where that training is needed and how much," Lamay said.
