Colin Fogarty and Nathan Young, both Noblesville firefighters, graduated from the Indianapolis Emergency Medical System Paramedic Science Program. Both have met the requirements to become licensed as paramedics in the State of Indiana.

The Paramedic Science Program consists of a 12-month curriculum which includes 440 hours in the classroom and laboratory, 270 hours in hospital clinical areas and 480 hours on advanced life support ambulances.

“We are proud of these men and their accomplishment. The time they committed to becoming paramedics was a big sacrifice, not only for them but also for their families,” said James Macky, EMS division chief. “The skills they have learned will be of great value to this department, but more importantly to the community we serve.”

Both men will participate in the Noblesville Fire Department’s Paramedic Field Training Program which consists of 240 hours of supervised training, prior to being released to function as paramedics with the department.
