Jerry Wu, a Fort Frances High School student and Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), had a chance to practice chest compressions on “METIman” at La Verendrye Hospital yesterday while local paramedic John Beaton assisted. The $58,000 simulator mannequin, which provides a realistic educational and training opportunity, is one Beaton is hoping to purchase for the local P.A.R.T.Y program and First Responders. He hopes to acquire the funds through donations from community partners and grants.
