Join us in recognizing two Hendrickson High School EMT students, Clara Buwule and Abbi Hinds, for their recent life-saving efforts. On Wednesday, both students received certificates of recognition from Georgetown Fire Department and challenge coins from Travis County Emergency Services District No. 2/ Pflugerville Fire Department.

In March, Buwule, as an EMT student, helped to keep a patient alive at Seton Medical Center Williamson, by applying chest compressions.

The following month, Hinds arrived with Georgetown paramedics at a nursing home to find a staff member performing CPR on a patient, who became unresponsive. Hinds was among those who performed CPR until the patient became responsive.

The students take classes in the Pflugerville ISD Career and Technical Education Healthcare Therapeutic-EMT program at Hendrickson High School. ­Students learn about and hone emergency medical skills in the campus laboratory, participate in hospital ER rotations and on-duty ambulance rides and can earn a National Registry EMT certification for free.

Way to go HAWKS!
