Texas paramedic looks back on 41 years in EMS - EMS1.comMonday, June 19, 2017
Star State. When Honey Grove’s funeral director decided to concentrate on transporting the irreversibly dead, the city bought an ambulance, but didn’t have the money to staff it 24/7. That’s when Colorado attorney and Honey Grove native William "Gene" Gandy officially became an EMS pioneer."I’d moved back home to our family ranch, figuring I could practice small-town law," Gandy says. "When the city had trouble running their ambulance, I met with the mayor and suggested we start a volunteer squad. I managed to find 35 people who felt the same, so we all got our first-aid certificates and formed the Honey Grove Volunteer Ambulance Service."Teaching EMS versus doing EMSSoon afterward, Gandy and his pals heard about a new course called "Emergency Medical Technician," with 10 times the training of basic first aid. Gandy got certified, then joined the faculty of Paris (Texas) Junior College’s EMT program, where he embraced the commitment needed to teach EMS effectively.Gene Gandy.

That means you have to do an awful lot of supplemental reading."If you use one textbook to teach from, I don’t care how good it is, it’s still just one book. If you said you were going to get through medical school or even nursing school with...Monday, May 01, 2017
