"Adam, Thanks for your experience in adapting. My agency may be looking into bringing on a Live-in Student with significant hearing loss (I do not yet know the extent but we have been asked to learn ASL to greet her at a social event). If we can…"

"The State will take a class even if in another state? Or is this related to funding of course expenses? Only about have of the TEMS providers in the country are armed and not all of them are sworn."

About Me
In my 30th year in 'the back of the truck'. I still love it nearly every day. If you do not like people, move on. I provide Tactical EMS coverage for a county wide law enforcement swat team. I am a member of a state sponsored Maine EMS Honor Guard. I plan on staying in the back of the truck for a few more years before someday retiring and becoming a fireman (it's the easiest retirement gig I can think of).
