Kettle Moraine High School Of Health Sciences HS^2
Lake Country Fire & Rescue Training Center (LCFR-TC) has created a partnership with the High School of Health Sciences (HS2), a charter school offered to the students at Kettle Moraine High School. The high school of health sciences is a charter school that exists on the campus of the Kettle Moraine High School. Students in HS2 will learn through immersive environments where they are introduced to diverse career pathways and professionals in the world of health care. Lake Country Fire & Rescue and LCFR-TC are working closely with HS2 and have offered workshops for students enrolled in the charter program. Students who participate in the workshops are able to see what it is like to be a firefighter/EMT. In each workshop, students learn how the fire service works, how to become trained, how all of our equipment works and were able to use the Jaws of Life to cut apart a car. The students also donned turnout gear and self contained breathing apparatus to experience what it is like to crawl through a maze and rescue a dummy. Our partnership has opened the student’s eyes as to what it is like to be a firefighter as most of them were not aware of our responsibilities and capabilities.
Looking into the future, LCFR and LCFR-TC will be offering an internship program for the students of HS2. LCFR-TC will be putting students through the EMT basic initial training course in their senior year. Once they have completed their EMT studies, they are eligible to participate in an internship program with LCFR and start responding to 911 emergencies. Our overall goal with this partnership is to enlighten these students, who know they want to pursue a career in the medical field, and show them how interesting and exciting the fire/EMS service can be.
