QUINCY — Six healthcare professionals are ready to join the ranks of the region’s first responders after graduating from Blessing Hospital’s emergency medical technician (EMT) program on May 23.

EMT graduates were Cain Miles of Quincy, Maiah Lenz of Liberty, Rachael Langworthy of Quincy, Jonica Harris of Quincy, Hunter Brock Bemis of Quincy and Josh Friye of Quincy.

The Blessing EMT program prepares a student to function as a medically competent entry-level EMT in the pre-hospital setting. The course meets all requirements of the United States Department of Transportation EMT curriculum as well as Illinois rules and regulations.

The emergency medical program is offered in conjunction with John Wood Community College and begins in January and August. This one-semester course meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for four hours each class. Students can earn six credit hours for successful completion of the course and are then qualified to sit for the NREMT Cognitive Exam.
