Emergency Medical Services Workshops Coming to Your Community

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services’ Emergency Medical Services Program offers ongoing training workshops across the state for emergency medical technicians and first responders.

Starting now, we’ll no longer send a separate release for each workshop. Instead we’ll send one news release at the end of every month listing all the workshops in Nebraska for the coming month.

Workshops are worth three continuing education hours unless otherwise noted.
