You cannot find another company that is more invested in making sure your school, church or business is in compliance with federal and local laws and ready to save lives.

In 1994, he started teaching EMT and advanced EMT classes full time. In 1998, he went to work in a hospital setting, in the ICU, ER and then the heart cath lab, as well as working part time for an air ambulance service. He has been on the board of various local, regional, state and national associations of EMS.
