Bound Tree Medical Launches Bound Tree University Website

Press Release Jan 30, 2011

Dublin, OH -- January 25, 2011 -- Bound Tree Medical today announced the release of a new educational website, Bound Tree University ( The site is dedicated to the education and interests of first responders, EMTs and paramedics. By offering free accredited continuing education courses, up-to-date articles and news on emergency care, this new site will be a helpful tool for EMS professionals.

In the current economy where budgets are tight, Bound Tree University provides valuable resources to help alleviate the financial burden of recertification and training. The website currently offers EMTs and paramedics 10.5 free continuing education units (CEUs). All courses on the website are interactive and fully accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS).

"With budget cuts across the country, it has become more and more difficult for EMS providers to allocate sufficient funds for training," says Hank Struik, Chief Executive Officer of Sarnova, Bound Tree's parent company. "Bound Tree University allows the men and women of fire and EMS to access crucial training materials without impacting their budget. It's one way we can give back to the EMS community."

Since its inception, Bound Tree Medical has been committed to meeting the needs of EMS providers by offering leading-edge products, training and education. In addition to free, online continuing education, Bound Tree offers one-on-one training with account managers and hosts live simulations and training sessions at national trade shows.
