Within it are the star of life, a rescue 8 tool, a diver flag, and a Hurst Tool ("jaws of life"), with an electrocardiogram (heart rhythm) tracing dividing the upper and lower halves. Coins are $20 each, and 100% of profits go directly to Burke County Rescue Squad.
  • This class prepares participants to diagnose allergic reactions, anaphylaxis, and administer epinephrine when indicated. Emphasis is on practical knowledge and hands-on skills and includes a live sterile injection component. Students who successfully complete the course receive a four-year certification to administer epinephrine via the North Carolina Office of EMS. No prior medical training or experience is required to enroll. This course is highly recommended for those who participate in wilderness or remote activities where EMS care for life-threatening allergic reactions would be delayed.

  • The Wilderness StarGuard® is a cutting edge course designed to meet the needs of wilderness trip leaders with a focus on prevention. This remote application to aquatic rescue courses can be taken alone as a primary training, as an add-on module to the StarGuard® course, or as a module for current lifeguards. Site assessment, swimmer assessment, and improvising lifeguarding equipment are key components that differentiate this course from traditional waterfront courses.
