Friday, January 18, 2013 – On January 18, 2013, six students and the EHS instructor from the College of Nursing and Health, Kongju National University, Korea, visited the Fifth District VFD along with Jason Woo, an international exchange graduate student at UMBC. The students were nursing, paramedic or emergency health administration majors. Friday was the third day in the Baltimore area before moving on to Washington, DC and New York. They had visited the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and SYSCOM before their fire station visit. They were interested in seeing and learning about a fire service combination system.
Jason translated a lengthy discussion about EMS in Howard County and answered our questions about EMS and Fire services in Korea. For Emergency Health Services students they really seemed to favor the fire trucks.
