“As a child, I was a huge fan of the TV show Emergency! I had always had in the back of my mind doing something in EMS and a chance encounter with an ambulance crew getting gas at Radburn Exxon in 1985 set me on my path. I became a member in 1986 and held several offices over the next decade including President of the organization for two years. As one of the few day time crewmembers, I’ve seen my fair share of calls, from trauma’s, motor vehicle accidents, childbirth, cardiac arrests and even have been on some calls where the
patient was brought back to life after CPR was administered.I continue to ride for the Corps 33 years after that chance encounter at the gas station. As a result of my experience and passion for helping people in need, I’ve gone on to be an instructor in CPR, Stop the Bleed, Hazard Communications and Bloodborne Pathogens and teach EMS for a private company. I’ve also gone back to school and became a Registered Nurse. Over the years I’ve meet some amazing people at the Corps and throughout emergency services in town. Most importantly I met my wife at the Corps. My life would have been completely different if I didn’t take the leap and fill out an application to volunteer at the Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance Corps”.
