During this time, they take a noncredit emergency medical technical course at Lehigh Carbon Community College and prepare for national EMT certification tests.

Cetronia Ambulance Corps recently offered the Lehigh Valley Press a chance to participate in the “Go for a Ride” program.

After receiving a tour of the ambulance and learning about some of the equipment from Cetronia Paramedic Austin Carpenter and EMT Robert Owen, this reporter, Carpenter and Owen were off to our first call — a patient with abdominal pains, who was transported to a local hospital.
