Here at Braun Industries, we have three EMTs on staff. Each of them is a valued member of the Braun family, serving our company and our communities with their first response skills. As part of EMS Week 2013, we asked them to share a brief quote on being an EMS professional. Here is what they had to say:
I have been a Firefighter/EMT for 10 years (Firefighter since 1997) and am currently working on two local departments. I live close to both departments and can help out each one when needed. I enjoy working in the EMS Service; it helps to make me a better person. I get a lot of self-pride from doing it and people appreciate the help, even when they don’t say it you can see it in their eyes. I just want to thank the communities for their support of our departments and for allowing me to serve them.

I have been a Volunteer Firefighter/EMT for 13 years. I got into this field because I love to help people. It is also a very exciting and rewarding job. My station runs two Braun units. We feel they are the best around; so when I got the opportunity to work for Braun, I jumped at the chance. I have now worked for Braun for ten years now and plan on retiring from here. I take a personal interest and responsibility in my work at Braun. I do this because I understand the importance of quality out in the field.

I run with the Payne Fire Department and have been on them for over 11 years. I joined the department – it is a family thing. My dad is the Lieutenant, my uncle and cousins are also EMT’s with different departments. I enjoy helping those who need the help the most – children and the elderly, and helping out the community when needed. Payne Fire Department also runs two Braun units.

A special thank you this week to Chad, Brian, and Josh – along with all EMS professionals! We truly appreciate your time and dedication in serving your communities by providing such an essential service.
