Jon And Ponch Goes EMT Training
2 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode,a swerving driver pulled over by Jon and Ponch turns out to be a fireman. Back at Central they volunteer for an E.M.T. (Emergency Medical Technician) course without reading the small print. The course is run by the fireman they pulled over, and he gives them a hard time.

While Ponch and Jon admire a couple hang-gliders, two kids cause a car to swerve. Ponch and Jon chase after the car. They catch the guy, who turns out to be a fireman, and give him a ticket for crossing the double line. After Ponch and Jon volunteer for EMT training at UCLA, they get assigned to the A-shift. The next day, they show up to class 10 minutes late. Their teacher is the same fireman they stopped the day before.

In the next EMT class, Ponch and Jon have to pull a "victim" up a hill three times. The next day, Ponch and Jon visit the fireman's house. While his family is happy to meet Ponch and Jon, the fireman is obviously upset with them. Feeling uncomfortable, Ponch and Jon make a break for the door.

Days later, Ponch and Jon encounter an accident caused by an old guy who had a heart attack. Ponch and Jon use their EMT training to save him.

An interesting episode into which our CHP officers become Emergency Medical Technicians and use their EMT training to save lives.
