Caleb Myers, Steven Layne, and Braedan Noblin
POCAHONTAS, AR Sept. 27— BRTC Freshmen Caleb Myers, Steven Layne, and Braedan Noblin recently completed the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) class in BRTC’s Firefighter Essentials Program. They then took the Arkansas Fire Academy’s EMR certification exam, and all three passed it on the first attempt, which gives BRTC a 100% pass rate on this exam for two years in a row.
Passing the exam certifies these three students as Emergency Medical Responders. Becoming a certified Emergency Medical Responder is a prerequisite for the state’s Firefighter I and II exams given at the end of the BRTC’s Firefighter Essentials Program.
