Paramedics were put to the test Tuesday at a conference that attracted hundreds of first responders to South Florida.
The paramedic competition was a highlight at the "First There First Care" Conference at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino & Hotel in Hollywood.
Dema Ammar is a student at Palm Beach State College and studying to become a paramedic. “Honestly after you go through all that, there’s nothing at school they can throw at you that can like throw you off,” Ammar said.
She watched certified paramedics from around the state put their life-saving skills to the test at the 24th Advanced Life Support Competition on Tuesday.
Broke Stark is in her last year of EMT school, she says these competitions can make you into a better paramedic.
