EMT Students at NTC Raise Funds for family of Fallen Firefighter
Students completing the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program at Northcentral Technical College (NTC) recently united to support the family of a fallen firefighter in Wisconsin. After students learned about the series of events that tragically caused the line-of-duty death of Appleton Firefighter Mitch Lundgaard, they knew that they needed to do something.
“We discussed what happened to Mitch on the EMS call that he was on,” said NTC Instructor Jackie Wagner. “The students were both shocked and saddened to hear that something so senseless had happened to him.”
That’s when one student sprang into action and found a fundraiser that was selling t-shirts to benefit the Lundgaard family. After hearing about the fundraiser, the class teamed up to purchase shirts as a group and raised over $400, which was donated to the Lundgaard family.
