In June, 2018, VA Beach EMS Basic Life Support Academy Class 25 graduation ceremony was held at the Virginia Beach Law Enforcement Training Academy. 34 new EMT students under the direction of VA Beach EMS Instruction Supervisor Karin Pettinger and VA Beach EMS Senior Paramedic Anthony Siciliano successfully completed the 16 week of emergency medical pre-hospital care course.
Before a full house of family members and fellow EMS volunteers, the new medics took the EMT Provider Oath, which was followed by an evening of friend and family congratulations and a lot of photos.
