Firefighter/ Paramedic , EMS and Fire training
officer with RCFD
Senior Field Paramedic and Field Training Officer
with Hospital - Based EMS
I started riding tailboards in 1975 with a county
based fire dept. I became a Paid EMT-P with AMS
in Oct 1986 and joined RCFD in 1990 and have served continuously. As of November 15th 2010, I will be a Full time Training Officer employed by Randall County Fire Dept and be prn at AMS
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I initially wanted to go into law enforcement, but a neighbor who was a police officer talked me into looking at either the fire service or EMS and the television show Emergency helped play a significant role in shaping my future
Top Issues Facing Responders:
1. Safety on and off the Fireground
3. Driver training
4 Public education
5. Funding for rural fire/ems systems
