Transitioning to Advanced Life Support included a quite a commitment -- renewing skills, continuing ed, and embracing the reality that, for EMS, it was a new day with greater complexity.
Steve has enjoyed getting to know the hundreds of folks in the area's allied medical community, as well as patients and their family members. He's become the familiar face of Ambulance Associates in the community!
