Gwinnett Fire Services Honors PCOM GeorgiaMarch 29, 2022
PCOM Georgia's Jeffrey Seiple and Toni Musta were on hand to accept the honors.
PCOM Georgia’s Anatomical Donor Services program and Simulation Center were recently honored by Gwinnett County Fire & Emergency Services with an award
recognizing the “partnership in education” between the two organizations.
Jeffrey Seiple, MBA, LFD, LE, PCOM Georgia’s director of anatomical labs and services, and Toni Musta, MS, manager
of the Simulation Center, were on hand to accept the honors at Gwinnett County Fire
& Emergency Services headquarters.
In presenting the award, Captain Chad Bird, paramedic program director, said, “What
started out of necessity has developed into a very fruitful relationship between PCOM Georgia and the Gwinnett County Training Academy. I don’t know what we would have done without
you,” he said.
Bird referred to the changes wrought by COVID-19 when hospitals halted student visits
to operating rooms. Prior to the pandemic, paramedic students were able to perfect
their intubation skills as required for graduation using hospital facilities.
“Our program found itself in a tough situation,” Bird said. “Thankfully PCOM stepped
up to help. This allowed our students to move forward and gain valuable experience,”
Fire Chief Russell Knick also acknowledged the relationship between the medical school
and the fire department. He said, “It’s a great partnership we have in Gwinnett County.”
