On May 22, Southern’s Health and Science Club was able to experience what it is like to be a paramedic. Joe Giberson, a paramedic for Southern Ocean County, talked about the job and its requirements. Students were then able to intubate a mannequin, read an EKG and Pulse Ox, and drill into bone to give an IV.

The club also recently collected 220 pounds of litter along the Barnegat Trail.
