UC Davis Fire Department Earns National Desingation and Recognition for Emergency Medical Services & Education
On Saturday February 29th, in Boston at the National Collegiate EMS Foundation Conference, UC Davis Fire Department received a prestigious national designation and two awards for our EMS and Pre-Hospital Care preparation, response, and education/outreach work. We are the first university in California to receive any of these:
HeartSafe Campus Designation
New Student EMTs Welcomed with Badge Pinning Ceremony
UCDFD Fire Captain Scott Hatcher shared a history of the program that is new to the organization within the last few years as a complementary offering to our student firefighter program and offers real-world experience following participation in our EMT certification program.
UC Davis Fire Department EMS Captain Scott Hatcher becomes the 4th person in the department to receive the Fire Chief's Citation of Excellence. This award is given to a person, or persons, who through an event or program they created have elevated the reputation of the campus fire department and the UC Davis campus as a whole. The event or program will be a representation of the department’s values and seeks to recognize those who selflessly go above and beyond.
Captain Hatcher is the vision behind our EMS and Pre-Hospital Care Division.
