I'm a 30+ year paramedic with experience in ambulance and fire department environments. I'm currently a consultant doing EMS training and QI for fire departments. I'm a published non fiction author and have written magazine articles, textbooks and stories. I'm completing final edits on my first novel which is heavily based on my own experiences as a paramedic, and write quarterly for "Interventions" magazine. A new project is developing a video webseries for First Responders Network called "Disaster Sam", which will highlight stories of disaster EMS workers and the "people" that work in EMS. I promote EMS social media and the intent to make the world of EMS a better place.
