Updated 11/20/14.


Welcome to web support for the EMSB 1101, 1102, 1111, 1112, 1601 and 1602 (Basic Emergency Medical Technology) classes Waid Ray teaches at Southwest Tennessee Community College! Class announcements are in red text below the line on this page.

The links on the left side and at the bottom of each page will take you to the various types of information pertinent to my classes. The links at the bottom of each page are always the same. The links to the left mirror the ones at the bottom except when you are visiting the Documents pages.

  • Thanks again to Ben and David Mitchell for sharing their FISDAP success roadmap.  They were gracious enough to agree to allow a recording be made of their discussion which can be found here.  More thanks to David for sharing his study journal which can be found here.  I am confident that their insight will be helpful to each of you.  The two study aids they mentioned are EMT Crash Course and Success! for the EMT-Basic.

  • Amy Frye is leading a Basic EMT study group session for FISDAP preparation.  The session will be held from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM in Room 301 at the Maxine Smith campus.  You must wear your student ID to attend. She will hold another session next week and I will provide details when I have them.

  • FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SEMESTER, bring your stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, penlight, watch with second hand and pocket mask TO EACH CLASS.  I open the lab as soon as I arrive, so you can come in early to work on your skills if you desire.  CLASS WILL NOT DISMISS BEFORE 9:30 P.M.!

  • Delta Medical Center clinical rotations: 1)  the Delta Medical Center procedure is found here, 2) the Delta Medical Center orientation is found here, 3) the Patient Care Report is found here (print at least 20 copies) and 4) the clinical attendance certification is found here (take one copy to each clinical session).

  • The overall Delta Medical Center clinical rotation schedule is available here.
