EMSStat’s Crimestopper Paramedic of the Year
I am very pleased to announce the EMSStat’s Crimestopper’s Paramedic of the Year is Brandon Gray.
Brandon first joined EMSStat in July 2007. He is currently a Relief Crew Chief, Critical Care Paramedic, excellent Field Training Officer, and the EMSStat’s SWAT Team Commander. In that role, he has been developing the relationship with the Moore Police Department, and EMSStat now trains monthly with Moore PD. Brandon is an excellent preceptor and takes a strong interest in the success of his students.
An excerpt from his nomination states “Brandon is a very important member of our team here at EMSStat and provides excellent leadership in roles such as SWAT Team leader, Relief Crew Chief, and FTO/Critical Care training. B Crew runs much smoother due the hard work of Brandon. He has such a strong work ethic and strives for excellence in everything he does. He provides guidance to others and doesn’t just set a good example, he is the example in which to make comparisons. His medicine is excellent and his patients enjoy his presence. His paperwork is well organized and free of mistakes . Most importantly he is a great person to work with and everyone enjoys working with him. Brandon makes good decisions and is an excellent resource for his peers. Brandon has an impeccable service record here at EMSStat.”
Brandon was a very close personal friend of EMSStat Paramedic Lem Findlay who was tragically killed in an accident earlier this year, and he took the loss very hard. Even so, Brandon was a rock for others to lean on and provided Lem’s wife, kids, and family with support while helping them make decisions and arrangements. “It takes a strong man to pull off that kind of dedication and he did it.”
