About The Training

Bentonville's Fire and Police departments will undergo training May 5-9 allowing paramedics to enter a crime scene with police so victims can receive medical service in a timely manner.

The training will begin with the departments’ administrations formulating a unified command. The second day will focus on the EMS response, the third will focus on the law enforcement response, the four will bring the two together and the fifth will “Train the Trainer” so the model can continue after the initial training is completed.
