EMT Class Receives Certifications

A group of students thumbnail247438
ERHS students enrolled in Mr. Gerken’s EMT class participated in a two-day trip to the Nassau County EMS Academy in Bethpage where they received important training and certifications.

On the first day the students were instructed in the proper techniques for performing CPR on adults, children, and infants. They were also instructed in the proper use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.

On the second day they learned and practiced techniques for a variety of first aid skills, including applying pressure to a wound and wrapping it with the roll of gauze and properly applying a tourniquet to stop bleeding. Other skills practiced were administering an EpiPen on each other (a training one, of course) and they practiced how to respond to a person choking.

The two days were a success for those involved as they will receive certifications for CPR, AED, and First Aid.

The district congratulates ERHS senior Aniyah Osouna who was awarded the 2023 United for Change Memorial Scholarship by the Say Their Names Association.

Aniyah was presented the scholarship by Say Their Names Association president Thomas Campone and board member Kim Kramer. Aniyah’s mom Lindsy was by her side for the presentation.

Aniyah was nominated for the scholarship by members of the school faculty, including English teacher Ms. Falvo, who characterized Aniya as an “agent for change.” “Aniya is an exceptional student and outstanding human being who is committed to making a positive impact to her community,” said Ms. Falvo. “She possesses a spirit, drive and determination that shines brightly and will serve her well as she begins the next chapter of her life and works towards a career where she will continue to help those in need.”

Starting in fall 2023, Aniyah will be attending the Nursing program at Hofstra University.

The Say Their Names Association is an Oceanside, NY based non-profit educational organization that provides scholarships to graduating Black or African American seniors in good academic standing who possess a strong sense of social responsibility, are empathetic, passionate, and sensitive to the needs of others.
