Tulsa police officers started training to be EMTs last winter.
Now, 30 officers are fully certified EMTs. The program and equipment was mostly funded by grants. Officers had to apply and be accepted into the program.
They say now they’re using their training to keep an eye out for heat stroke and heat exhaustion. They’ve also used their skills in emergency situations to triage wounds in some cases.
