Hello, my name is Dallen and this website is my brainchild. I work as a Critical Care Paramedic, a job I genuinely love. The job is very rewarding on multiple levels. It is an awesome thing to be part of a highly skilled team that can make a difference in someone’s life when they experience sickness or injury. I take my job very seriously. Someone once related to me that when a person seeks the service of an ambulance or a hospital, it’s not because they are having the best day of their life. In a very real sense, they may be having the worst day of their life. I am in a unique position to make the day better or worse. Through my own individual commitment to self-betterment, I improve the skill set I am able to offer those who need it. I’ve often said, it’s not that I want you to get sick, I just want to be there when you do. In the sea of emotion on high-energy, high-stress calls, my world seems to slow down. I gently and sweetly slip into my element and together, with the care team, miracles happen.
I’m very passionate about education, specifically pre-hospital EMS. Sadly, the paramedics worst enemy is the paramedic. Our laziness and lack of commitment to our profession are our biggest hindrances. Every time I hear about a poorly trained paramedic that has let someone needlessly die- or worse, actually contributed to their death- it really gets to me. Fortunately, we can change this. Through a commitment to better ourselves and those we work with, we can bring better care to sick people and more respect for the people who provide it.
