This is the first of our new series of interviews with current staff. On Monday’s we’ll be sharing an interview from a paramedic and on Tuesday’s we’ll share an interview with an EMT or AEMT.
Welcome to #TechTuesday
Today we would like to introduce you to EMT Ryan Yarbrough! Take it away EMT Yarbrough:
Where are you originally from?
What do you do outside of work?
Motorcycles, “wrenching,” diesel power, but I also like operas and theatre.
How did you get interested/started in EMS?
My aunt was a nurse for over 30 years. I use to call and talk about calls that I had on during ride time.
What brought you to Georgetown?
Phil Halley (an EMT here) talked this agency up. When I spoke to a fee other fellow EMS friends, they recommended GSCEMS due to the fact that we are fast-paced and progressive in our scope of practice in the workplace.What is your position at GSCEMS?
It says EMT on my shirt, but I like to go as the Mule. First platoon is my shift day!
What is your favorite thing about EMS/your job?
I would say some fo the patients are a delight to talk to. Especially the older generation that has been round and watched Georgetown grow. Making a connection with a patient in their time of need is always a plus.
Where in Scott County would you take a visitor?
The Toyota Plant, but then to Evan’s Orchard.
