New England Emergency Medical Training opens doors in East Providence with Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

EAST PROVIDENCE, RI – East Providence officials joined in the celebration of an Open House/Ribbon Cutting ceremony recently for the New England Emergency Medical Training (NEEMT) in its new location at 1970 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence.

East Providence City Manager Paul Lemont, Rhode Island State Representative Katherine Kazarian, and City Councilor Bob Britto were on hand to welcome CEO Carol Mansfield to East Providence.

Ms. Mansfield acquired NEEMT recently and plans to expand the school’s offerings. The new  2,500 square foot location will now serve as headquarters for NEEMT and will house some of the growing company’s administrative offices.

According to Mark Haskell, President of Corporate Relations and Government Affairs for Stat/Southcoast EMS and Coastline EMS, the school will be incorporated under the Stat/Southcoast and Coastline umbrella, and will seek to draw students from Massachusetts as well as Rhode Island. Presently, New England Emergency Medical Training primarily prepares individuals for EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and Paramedic examinations. Haskell notes that they may include training in related areas, such as Phlebotomy, CPR, ACLS, PAIS, EKG, CNA; and refreshers that will include CEU Credits, EVOC for ambulance, and OSHA. Additionally, they do “Mock Codes” for contracted medical facilities.

New England Emergency Medical Training currently has 10 instructors, and Haskell said that they expect to increase the number of instructors in the near future.
