LCC Receives Ambulance from Labette Health
May 17, 2023
Labette Community College (LCC) is thrilled with the donation of a retired ambulance from Labette Health to aid with Health Science Course training. “The Workforce Department and Career Technical Educational (CTE) programs are excited to add this piece of equipment for students to get firsthand training,” stated Ross Harper, LCC’s Director of Workforce Education and Career Training. “LCC would like to thank Labette Health, along with Labette Health EMS for their generous donation.”
The ambulance will provide training opportunities for the EMT program along with disaster simulations for all the Health Science programs. The EMT program fulfills high in-demand career employment opportunities. The Kansas Department of Labor Long-Term Occupation Projections say there are around 148 EMT job openings annually.
To show the ambulance as LCC’s, the Graphic Design Technology students, Workforce Director and Wright Signs created the wrap that enhances the body of the vehicle. “We wanted to showcase both the Health Science Programs as well as the Allied Health programs,” said Harper. “The wrap enriches the ambulance with attractive red, and black colors, while white lettering of the college name along with Allied Health and Workforce Education show the ownership of the ambulance. It is like a moving billboard, which we plan to use at various events to promote LCC, Workforce and the Health Science Programs.”
