VIDEO: EMS national week is May 21 through May 27, and it is an opportunity to celebrate emergency medical services staff and the work they do in our communities. In Denver alone, paramedics at Denver Health respond to more than 120,000 calls every year. But it would not be possible to do without proper training. One local educator and paramedic for the EMS program has found a way to make learning very realistic in a cost-effective way. For more than 20 years, Christy Allen has been helping train EMT students at Denver Health Paramedics - EMS education school. "I like to teach people how to save lives," said Allen. Ten years ago, Allen was asked to find a cost-effective way to make this experience of teaching students realistic, while also saving the school some money.
