Redmond EMS Director Marty Robinson spoke to students in the "Take Back Polk" youth mentoring program.

"Take Back Polk" is a youth mentoring program focused on providing support for at-risk youth in the Polk County School System.

When students achieve goals set by their mentors, they are able to participate in field trips that provide education about activities and opportunities within the county. Local community leaders guide portions of each field trip tour.

Redmond EMS Director Marty Robinson led one of the field trip tours and shared insight about career opportunities as an EMT or paramedic as well as provided tours of Redmond ambulances.
