When I went into my LINK internship I had some experience in the medical field. Being a Lifeguard I was first aid level one, CPR, and AED certified. This was helpful because to go into this internship I needed CPR certification, and I had already had that certification. I did not have any firefighting or rescue experience for the internship. Being that there is a significant amount of medical attention in this internship, my lifeguard training was helpful on a minor level. During LINK I gathered more knowledge on medical, fire, and rescue training. During my project in training for becoming a theoretical employee of Upper Pine, I learned more information on the medical side than anything else. The internship as a whole was very challenges at many times, this would include the bunker gear drills in which we were in full firefighter gear and went through crawl spaces in hot environments. These challenges were difficult to complete but out of the challenges from the bunker gear drills to memorizing all of the equipment in the ambulance, but the amount of knowledge out of the challenges is non-replaceable. With all that I learned, I was a helpful contribution to the organization in knowing how to help in an emergency situation on the field and in the ambulance. The importance of the internship spread over me fast from beginning to end, during this internship you can learn basic first aid, and know how to give medical attention in emergency situations. You learn responsibility, dedication, and integrity through the whole process of the internship. From this internship, I now am planning EMT courses through the Upper Pine administration during the fall. Throughout college, I wish to embrace the possible career interest in Search and Rescue. The first steps to this are EMT courses for which I am taking in the fall. My internship alone is what created this mass interested in the rescue field. I would do this internship multiple times if I could.
