32 Lessons Learned & Highlights One of the most profound lessons was how labor intensive and time consuming it is to review, coordinate, and implement class curriculum. The EMT curriculum task force was made up of representatives from Saddleback College, Santa Ana College, Orange County Fire Authority, Care Ambulance, Coastline Regional Occupational Program, and Orange County Emergency Medical Services.
33 Lessons & Highlights continued Addition to the current EMT curriculum allows for standardization throughout Orange County A definite highlight is actually seeing the new skills taught in our current EMT classes and realizing the standard of education and medical services has improved.
