On the evening of Monday, July 15, 2002, six members of the Cincinnati Fire Department graduated from the University of Cincinnati's 28th graduating class of paramedics. Over the past ten months the students have attended 105 classes and 18 lab sessions, taken 10 written exams, and performed 150 clinical hours in area hospitals.

In addition they have ridden on paramedic transport units for over 300 hours and have provided Advanced Life Support to 32 critically ill or injured patients. They have also been trained in the procedures for helicopter patient transfer. These students are now certified in Advanced Life Support as well as Pediatric Advanced Life Support. They have all earned 45 college credits toward an EMS Associate's Degree.

Upon successful testing later this week by the National Accrediting Registry the following members will become certified as Paramedics and will join the ranks of the city's 150 Fire-Medics and 650 Fire-EMTs who provide Emergency Medical Service to the people of Cincinnati:

Captain George Hornback, Captain Joe Wolf, Lieutenant Gayle Unzicker, Lieutenant Mark Schwetschenau, Fire Apparatus Operator Doug Riedel, and Firefighter Melissa Brown.
