At LivesNeedSaving.org, we are celebrating #NationalSchoolPictureDay and #TBthursday with a look back at Virginia Beach EMS Basic Life Support Academy Class 03-2014 graduation picture [pre-covid19].
It was a time of handshakes, hugs, standing shoulder to shoulder and no face-mask required.
Jump forward to 2020 and COVID19 restrictions.
Like schools across the country, the Virginia Beach BLS Accredited Training Academy instructional environment looks different and for right now, no group photo of EMT graduates standing shoulder to shoulder & no handshakes from the chief.
COVID19 restriction will pass someday and we will be back to group hugs and photos of our new first responders standing shoulder to shoulder and lots of high-five.
Until then, our evening EMT classes sizes are smaller, involve more virtual on line instructions and all students-instructors are following COVID 19 protocols.
