The Russell County Ambulance Service in partnership with Russell County Schools, Lindsey Wilson College of Nursing and PHI Air Medical will be conducting a training exercise on Monday, November 19, 2018 at approximately 9:30amCT. The training exercise will include a simulated school bus accident involving another vehicle and several patients. There will be other agencies involved such as the Jamestown Police Department, Jamestown Fire Department, and the Kentucky State Police. This simulated event will occur near the Russell County Ambulance Station on Ferco Way in Jamestown. This will be a training exercise that will provide students with a hands on, real world “Mock” emergency. All agencies involved strive to provide a learning environment that will prepare students for true emergencies they may encounter as future healthcare providers. This event is a training exercise only, and there is no reason for concern or alarm. Thank you for your encouragement and support of our youth.
