Want to know more about  EMS? Interested youth are given the opportunity to observe and ride-a-long with a nationally accredited Cetronia Ambulance crew. Under the supervision of Cetronia’s highly skilled Paramedics & EMT’s, observers will witness firsthand what it like is to be on an ambulance and respond to emergency calls. Cetronia staff will also come to your youth group to give an overview of EMS, its career opportunities and demonstrations of life-saving equipment. 

Please contact our Education Department for more information on ride-a-longs or any of the following youth programs, including our annual summer EMS youth camp, or call Stephen Hall at 610-398-0239, ext. 517.
