Starke County EMS Teams Up with Local Athletic Trainers for Safety Refresher

Starke County EMS recently teamed up with local athletic trainers to ensure everyone is prepared for the upcoming football season.

EMS officials shared that they recently collaborated with athletic trainers from Knox and North Judson-San Pierre to review equipment removal and other safety procedures that are vital to know when a student-athlete is injured.

The department took advantage of a similar training opportunity last summer when they worked with athletic trainers from Knox and La Porte Schools.

In their post about this year’s training, EMS reps thanked the athletic trainers for taking the time to refresh emergency personnel on new equipment and wished all local athletes a safe, fun season.
