Advanced Tactical EMS course to take place Saturday
Cowley College will conduct an Advanced Tactical EMS course Saturday at the Winfield Allied Health and Arkansas City campuses.
The students will start the day in Winfield at 1 p.m. and will move to the Ark City campus at around 5 p.m., where they will do tactical scenarios (active shooter, hostage rescue, barricaded suspect, etc.) until 1 a.m.
The students will complete training scenarios in the Brown Center, Web Brown Center, McAtee Dining Center and the Criminal Justice House.
During this training the students will be dressed in full tactical (SWAT team) gear. This includes carrying fake guns that may look very real when viewed at a distance. There are no real guns involved in this training, but there will be blanks fired from a blank gun during the event that will mimic real gunfire.
