Mike Marsh is back on the Disaster Podcast in his new role as Operations Chief for American Medical Response (AMR) in Contra Costa County, California. He is an AMR “Star of Life” recipient for his work in MCIs and disasters. Mike has been a frequent guest on the Disaster Podcast and we’ve talked to him about how ambulance companies can add value by starting tactical medical programs.
On this episode discussed his involvement in Urban Shield when he brought a herd of ambulances to Alameda County to exercise the Ambulance Strike Team. Sam and Mike discussed the wide variety of options for EMTs and paramedics that didn’t exist that long ago like event medicine, community paramedicine, and tactical medicine. EMSer’s that take advantage of ancillary training, learn new skills and spread their wings in new areas are more likely to find more excitement and new potential in their careers.
