GCEMS is committed to being an active force in Guilford County when it comes to promoting injury prevention programs and health and safety awareness. We have educational programs that are directed toward specific age groups. We offer grade level, curriculum based, educational programs for K-3, 4-5 and middle school students. Informational sessions on career opportunities with EMS are available at the high school level as part of a planned Career Day or as requested by a teacher to supplement to their curriculum.

Senior Citizens Health
Senior citizens of our community can benefit from our fall prevention class called Matter of Balance. This evidence based program is designed to help older adults reduce their fear of falling thereby enhancing activity levels through physical exercise. Health related topics such as recognizing signs and symptoms of stroke and heart attacks, weather related, and diabetic emergencies are a few of the programs available to our senior population.
