personal interests community south lincoln ambulance association volunteer
With CPR and defensive driving training, I served as an ambulance driver aiding trained EMTs and Paramedics with supplies, training classes, extrication, and patient packaging.
I was the primary driver for many of my sixteen years with Yachats Rural Fire Protection District and South Lincoln Ambulance.
I finally had to stop driving when my back prevented me from lifting heavy gurnies and 100% participation.
My wife, Lynn, was also a volunteer for many of those years, usually recording patient data and stats.

New Ambulance, South Lincoln Ambulance Association, Yachats, Oregon, 2004.
In 2004, I was a member of the committee which organized the design and construction of Yachat's new ambulance.
One of my graphic designs was used for the final paint job.
Often called "the wave" or "tsunami" the graphics are unique along the coast.
