Partnership in Excellence Program
The Novi Fire Department partners with Providence Hospital and the Novi High School to educate young adults about medical careers. Novi High School students receive a presentation twice a year, fall and spring about the value of medical education to emergency responders by the departments Training Officer. Students are provided a tour of the Novi Fire Department EMS units. The Novi Fire Department has participated with Novi High School and Providence Hospital in the “Partnership in Excellence” program since 2007. Several students have expressed interest about a career in the Fire Department. This gives the students a great opportunity to ask questions about pre-hospital careers that are available to them in the health field.
