National EMS Academy Employees Recognized for 20 Years of Service
Date:12/5/2013

Lafayette, La. (PRWEB) December 05, 2013

Ten members of the National EMS Academy were recognized by the Board of Directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for achieving 20 consecutive years as nationally registered EMTs. This honor, which is held by few EMTs, was awarded to David Finley, Chris Bearb, Jessica Hirtzler, Debra Redfearn, Glenn Naquin, Rob Clement, Charles Murphy, Mitch Trahan, Karri Ancelet, and Alan Lambert.

The NREMT was implemented in 1970 after President Johnson's Committee on Highway Traffic Safety recommended the creation of a national certification agency to establish standards for the training and examination of personnel active in the delivery of emergency ambulance service. For more than 40 years, the NREMT has upheld its mission by providing a consistent method to assess the knowledge and skills required for practice and by maintaining a registry of certification status.

To maintain their status as nationally registered EMTs, all had to complete, every two years, the most comprehensive recertification program for EMTs in the nation. In addition to completing refresher courses, they also attended a minimum of one hour per month of continuing education courses, making them part of an elite group of EMTs with the highest level of training in pre-hospital emergency medical care.

"The National EMS Academy values honesty, diversity, professionalism, life-long learning, and a passion for teaching," said Kirk LaCour, director of NEMSA. "These 10 individuals are a true testament of the vision of our academy."

Since 1971, Acadian has provided the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation possible. In the past decade, the company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services in health, safety, and transportation. Acadian's six divisions are Acadian Ambulance Service, Acadian Monitoring Services, Air Med, Executive Aircraft Charter Service, National EMS Academy and Safety Management Systems.
