Litton's Ambulance of Mt. Vernon, Jefferson Fire Protection District, and the Rend Lake College EMS faculty performed a mock trauma drill Tuesday at the college for students enrolled in RLC's Discovery Camp. Also as part of the event, the Air Evac Life Team helicopter was flown in and students were given the chance to ask questions and get a close look at the helicopter's interior. The Discovery Camp is made up of students, from sixth graders to high school sophomores, who plan to pursue careers in the health care field.
