Cetronia Ambulance Corps now state education institute

SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., - Cetronia Ambulance Corps is celebrating its recent accreditation as a Pennsylvania Department of Health EMS Education Institute. 

"We pride ourselves in top quality education of not only our lifesaving providers but also our community," said Larry Wiersch, CEO of Cetronia Ambulance Corps. 

Cetronia is one of just two accredited EMS education institutes in the region that is not directly associated with a government organization or Institute of Higher Learning. 

Its staff of instructors includes those from the National Association of EMS Educators, Pennsylvania Department of Health EMS, American Heart Association and more. 

The corps has also applied to be recognized as an EMS education institute at the national level.

"Our newly achieved accreditation is one more step in ensuring we remain prepared with the very best in caring for our community," Wiersch said. 

Cetronia Ambulance Corps holds classes in its St. Luke's Community Education Center, but under the licensing of other accredited institutions. Now, it can hold them as well as more classes with its own accreditation. 

The corps will formally announce its accreditation as a Pennsylvania Department of Health EMS education institute with a celebration held Oct. 20 at 9 a.m. It will take place at Cetronia Ambulance Corps in the St. Luke's Community Education Center at 4300 Broadway, Allentown.
