LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The latest EMTs to join Louisville Metro Emergency Services walked across the stage for graduation on Friday.

The mayor and EMS Director were among those to congratulate 13 students who have been trained to become Emergency Medical Technicians.

They saw the result of their hard work as they graduated today.

“You’re here today because you put in the hard work already to become trained EMTs--and by hard work, you guys know what I’m talking about,” Mayor Greg Fischer said.

“You put in the time in the classroom, you’ve studied many hours, you’ve been out on the road, so you’ve got a good feeling for what this job would entail and you’re now ready to do it.”

The students studied and trained for 16 weeks to become EMTs.
