College marks emergency medical training partnership with NLR Fire Department
The press event in the lobby of the Center for Humanities and Arts was attended by NLR Mayor Joe Smith; Chief of Staff Danny Bradley; NLR Fire Department Assistant Chief Beau Buford; numerous firefighters and other first responders, and a cohort of UA-PTC students from the Emergency Medical Sciences program.
“We have found a permanent home with the UA – Pulaski Tech Emergency Medical Sciences Program,” declared Chief Beau Buford.
The college began talks with UAMS to locate the program at UA-PTC in 2017. The first students transferred here last year, and then the college accepted the first new cohort of 27 students into the credit-bearing program. 14 of those students are from the North Little Rock Fire Department.
“What a success this partnership has created,” said NLR Mayor Joe Smith. “I’m very proud that my administration could be a part of it.”
