For the third year, firefighters and paramedics in Paso Robles are working with local high school students to equip them with the real-world knowledge of what to do in an emergency, according to a news release from the city.

The partnership is between the city’s Department of Emergency Services and Paso Robles High School’s Regional Occupational Program Community Healthcare Program.

Under the curriculum, students work two hours every week at Fire Station No. 2 each semester for instruction in basic fire fighting and emergency medical service skills based on real-life scenarios, officials said.

The program “provides valuable interaction between our organization and the high school students interested in our profession,” fire Chief Ken Johnson said in the statement.
