National EMS Academy Employees Recognized for 30 Years of Service

Lafayette, LA (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Five members of the National EMS Academy were recognized by the Board of Directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for achieving 30 consecutive years as nationally registered EMTs. This honor held by few EMTs was awarded to Andy Bruch, Al Landry, Chris Mixon, Liz Mrak and Gene Salassi.

The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians was implemented in 1970 after President Lyndon Johnson's Committee on Highway Traffic Safety recommended the creation of a national certification agency to establish uniform standards for training and examination of personnel active in the delivery of emergency ambulance service. For over 40 years, the NREMT stays committed to upholding its mission to provide a valid, consistent method to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice required by professionals throughout their careers and by maintaining a registry of certification status.

To maintain their status as nationally registered EMTs, all completed, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive recertification program for Emergency Medical Technicians in America. The group not only completed courses to refresh their fundamental knowledge and skills but also attended a minimum of one hour per month of additional continuing education courses to advance his knowledge of new lifesaving skills.

By maintaining their nationally registered status and completing regular continuing education courses, the five are among the few elite EMTs with the most training in pre-hospital emergency medical care in the nation.

“The National EMS Academy values honesty, diversity, professionalism, life-long learning, and a passion for teaching,” said Kirk Lacour, director of NEMSA. “These five 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.
