This project will train and certify six paramedics from Blackfeet Tribal Health’s current emergency medical technician staff. A consultant will provide classroom and skills training, and paramedic students will have the opportunity to do ride-alongs and work in the emergency departments of partner organizations. Trained paramedic staff will allow the tribe to address workforce challenges and provide much needed services for the community.
