Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH EASCARE AND WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SUPERVISORY ROLE?
PB: I've been with EasCare for over 5 years. It was my first EMS gig. My position consists of overseeing operations in the western region. I'm responsible for medical supplies, taking care of the crews, taking care of the people here and making sure that they have what they need to do their job and enjoy coming to work every day.
I like to make sure the crews have what they need to do their job well and assist them as needed, like during the snow storms. When they get stuck, I like to give them an extra set of hands or go to the hospital or go there to help crews move patients. I don't necessarily interact with the facility, per se, I'm more there to help the crews. I also make sure the policies are understood, followed and enforced. My approach is that I don't like to lead with discipline, I'm more of a lead by an example/lead by positive reward in the workplace.
