COVID-19 Procedures

At National EMS Institute we’re closely monitoring the guidelines laid out for us and working diligently continue to provide top quality EMS education. We cannot do it alone and need each and every student to be vigilant against this virus. Here are some best practices that have been put in place to keep staff and students safe.

Requirements:

  • Maintain Social Distance. Be sure you are creating space between you and fellow classmates whenever possible. If using a desk, one student per desk please.
  • Practice Proper Hand-washing Techniques. When entering the facility, please wash your hands with warm soapy water. If unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
  • Surgical Masks MustBe Worn. We understand this can be uncomfortable when lifting and moving, however it is a requirement. All students and stuff MUST be wearing surgical masks when in our facilities. Cloth masks are not appropriate.
  • Cleansing Equipment After Each Use. To keep everyone safe, it is important that after each use equipment is wiped down with disinfectant. Each student will be required to wear non-latex gloves when using the equipment as an extra layer of precaution.
  • Daily Health Screenings. When entering the campus, you must fill out a daily COVID-19 Wellness Questionnaire. Once complete, please hand your form to the Instructor for review. If you feel unwell, please do not come to class. Call the office at 1-800-497-6732 and we will work out the best plan of action on a case by case basis.
  • Daily Temperature Screenings. When entering the campus, you must get your temperature read using a forehead thermometer. If you are outside of normal range, please do not come to class. Call the office at 1-800-497-6732 and we will work out the best plan of action on a case by case basis.
  • Thank you for abiding by these rules. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy. That starts with YOU!
