HVA Behind the Scenes


HVA Behind the Scenes runs for six consecutive Wednesday

from April 4 through May 9 at 6:30 p.m.

at HVA’s Ann Arbor headquarters located at 1200 State Circle.


If going behind-the-scenes at Huron Valley Ambulance to learn about Emergency Medical Services is on your bucket list, you will want to be sure to register for HVA Behind the Scenes. The free interactive 6 week Academy is an opportunity for participants to explore what it takes to provide quality emergency medical services to HVA's multi-county service area.


Academy participants learn how 9-1-1 medical calls are triaged and dispatched, see demonstrations of equipment and procedures used by EMS crews in the field and get trained in the latest hands-on chest compression CPR techniques. In addition, guest lecturers from local fire and police departments and HVA special operations teams share first-hand knowledge of public safety procedures.


Highlights of the HVA Behind the Scenes include:

·    a tour the HVA facility, including the 9-1-1 Call center

·    hands on training that leads to CPR and First Aid certification

·    interactive demonstrations of the life-saving skills HVA paramedics use in emergency situations

Be sure to register early so you do not miss the opportunity to check this exceptional experience off your bucket list. Enrollment in HVA Behind the Scenes is limited to 25 participants. There is no charge to attend. Participants must be at least 18 years old.


Registration is open to people living in any of our service areas with priority given to residents of Washtenaw County or one of the following western Wayne County communities: Belleville, Plymouth, Plymouth Township, Sumpter Township, and Van Buren Township.
