SVFD FIREFIGHTER, TYSON WILCOX GRADUATES FROM PARAMEDIC SCHOOL
Four SVFD Firefighters just graduated from Paramedic School. Tyson is one of our recent graduates!
Tyson came to SVFD in 2014. after working in Miles City, Montana for 4 years. In 2011, he became a Paramedic in Montana but after coming to Washington, he did not transfer his credentials. Although Paramedics are nationally registered, Tyson’s Paramedic program was Non-accredited.
Tyson said school was much easier the second time around! It refreshed his memory and made him more prepared after not practicing as a Paramedic for over 8 years!
We are excited about Firefighters who continue to grow and develop their skills here at the SVFD. We are proud of these hardworking individuals who want to educate themselves in order to care for the community they serve more effectively and more efficiently. Paramedic services and EMS calls top the list of calls for service here at the SVFD.
We want to thank Tyson for investing in his future and the care of the community he serves.
Congratulations on graduating from Paramedic School!
