Tuesday, Tuesday, gotta get down on Tuesday! (Don’t worry Rebecca Black, we knew this was what you meant to say in your song!) Think we can get her to record a song about #TechTuesday or is that too much?

EMT Jackson Lyons dropped in because she heard there were tacos. Turns out, no tacos. So she decided to let you all get to know her.

I am a dog mom to a little Border Collie puppy named Lilah, who happens to be the cutest. I am the youngest of two. My older brother is my best friend! I love all genres of music. I am awful at talking about myself! I am very outgoing.

1) Where are you originally from?

Lived in Kentucky my whole life, raised in Nicholasville, spent the last few years in Lexington

2) What are your hobbies, interests, etc?

I love painting and drawing, when I’m bored I usually drive around with windows down or play with/train Lilah.

3) How did you become interested/get started in EMS?

I was a sophomore in high school when I became interested in the medical field. So I decided to take an EMS class and loved it from there. I loved the on-your-feet thinking and not sitting at a desk all day.

4) What brought you to Georgetown?

I did my ride time a year or so ago at GSCEMS and I loved the crews and environment here and knew that’s where I wanted to work when I got my license 

5) What is your position at GSCEMS?

EMT

6) Where did you go to EMT school?

Southside Technical School

7) What is your favorite thing about EMS/your job?

The people you meet and get to help. But also, how happy they are that you are there to help. Even the work family you become a part of is like no other.

8) What is one thing currently that you would change about EMS as a whole?

Probably how appreciated EMS is.  A lot of people don’t understand how much EMTs and medics do and how much they go through for their patients

9) What is one place in Scott County that you would take a visitor?

Hmmmm…..I’m not sure!  I’m not from here, why don’t you all tell me where to visit!

Ah, Monday again. Who has the coffee brewing?! It’s okay, have a second cup……..that should at least help you make it to lunch!

Paramedic Terry Vance dropped by because he needed a coffee refill and decided to introduce himself. Don’t worry, he’s had coffee so he’s a big teddy bear. Just ask his work partner!

Vance, pictured right, was part of a parade the citizens of Scott County organized to honor First Responders on the front lines of the pandemic.

I am a father of six children and currently have one grandchild.  Yes, you read that correctly and I love every minute of being a father.  Being part of a family is important and gives one a sense of belonging.  With that, I have been a paramedic at GSCEMS for the past 14 years and I have loved every minute of it.  These fine men and women have been my second family for many years.

1) Where are you originally from?

Originally I am from West Virginia but have been a resident of Kentucky since 2001.  

2) What are your hobbies, interests, etc?

I love being in the outdoors and definitely love this time of year.  I love children as well and have been a foster parent for 13 years now, giving children a chance at a normal life which is why I have such a large family.  

3) How did you become interested/get started in EMS?

For many years I have worked in multiple different areas of healthcare but always wanted more. Being there and making a difference in someone’s or families’ life is what always drew me towards a career in EMS.  So when I moved my family to Kentucky to begin a new life, I finally found a program at EKU that would help achieve that goal for me.

4) What brought you to Georgetown?

GSCEMS was the place I completed the clinical portion of my degree in emergency medical care. They equipped me with the knowledge I needed to obtain my certification and I knew at that time I would work for the community of Scott County.  So here I am 14 years later serving the citizens of this great county.

5) What is your position at GSCEMS?

I am a Paramedic

6) Where did you go to Paramedic school?

I attended the paramedic program at EKU where I obtained my degree in emergency medical care.

7) What is your favorite thing about EMS/your job?

Having the opportunity to be able to serve and hopefully make a difference in someone’s life when they are having one of the worst days of their life.

8) What is one thing currently that you would change about EMS as a whole?

Continuous public education along with a strong Community Paramedicine program. 

9) What is one place in Scott County that you would take a visitor?

The local eateries in downtown.
