Paramedic recognized for service
Placeholder Image
Bryan County resident Rodney Denmark, a paramedic with Med Star Ambulance Co., was recently recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Board of Directors for achieving 20 consecutive years as a nationally registered paramedic
This distinction is an honor held by few.
To maintain his status as a nationally registered paramedic, Denmark completed on a biennial basis the most comprehensive recertification program for paramedics and EMTs in the U.S.
He not only completed courses to refresh his fundamental knowledge and skills but also attended a minimum of two hours per month of additional continuing education courses to advance his knowledge on new lifesaving skills.
By maintaining this status and completing regular continuing education courses, Denmark is among the few elite paramedics with the most training in pre-hospital emergency medical care in the nation.
Denmark was nationally registered as a paramedic in 1988 and has been serving the community since 1991.
Prior to this position, Demark served in the U.S. Navy, retiring as a chief petty officer from NRMC Beaufort, Parris Island.
The NREMT serves as the national EMS certification organization by providing a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice by EMS professionals throughout their careers and by maintaining a registry of certification status.
