Q: Why did you become a first responder?

A: I had family that did fire police with Mount Holly Springs Fire Company and then I joined when I turned 18, so probably about 28 years ago. Then I just wanted … something different, more challenging, so I decided to become an EMT.

Q: Can you describe a call that has influenced you? What did that call look like and why did it impact you?

A: We had a patient go down at the laundromat for a cardiac arrest. We worked him, got his pulses back and so today he’s still alive, walking and talking. It was a challenging event, our closest ALS (Advanced Life Support) was coming out of Carlisle but they were delayed response, so we had everything done with the patient before ALS arrived on the scene without ALS care.
