Albany--Georgia emergency nurses and E-M-S workers came to Darton College Thursday to learn lessons that could help them save your life. They attended training lectures and checked out the latest in life saving equipment.

Low wages in the industry left almost 100 vacancies in Southwest Georgia last year. But those at today's conference say there is a bigger pay off. "You get to be there for the families and the victims and when they look up its a relief ahh you are here to help me," says former emergency nurse Kim Cribb.

Continuing education is a requirement for emergency workers. To be recertified they have to complete 12-hours of training every two years.
