Palomar College Foundation received EMS (emergency medical services) training equipment worth $28,708, including an infant-sized CPR manikin and simulation software. The awarded equipment will be used during training exercises, helping ensure San Diego first responders are prepared to provide life-saving assistance in emergency situations involving babies.

As Rorie Johnston, CEO of the Escondido Chamber of Commerce, described it: “Today, I had the privilege of attending the Escondido Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation grant celebration. The grant funds were given to Palomar College for the EMT training program, which allowed them to purchase a SIMBaby Manikin. The manikin comes with a hefty price tag of $28,708.00. If you see this hiDEF manikin in action, you will understand why. These life-like ‘dolls’ simulate over 1000 responses, which allow the EMTs to practice caring for infants before they are called into action in the field, which increases the odds of an infant surviving a medical emergency.”
