SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

Some local first responders were put to the test Tuesday in South Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co.

Officials from the Penn State Hershey Department of Emergency Medicine stopped by Cetronia Ambulance Corps to recruit paramedics for a research study.

The goal of the study is to improve training of airway management techniques by testing the effectiveness of remote video and internet training.

The two-part study is expected to take at least two years to complete.
