In this role I provided Major Incident training to all trust staff as well as awareness training on the Trusts Special Operations and Specialists Resources that are available.
I also provide specialist commander training to all the trusts commanders at all levels of command.
I also dual role as a NILO (National Interagency Liaison Officer) in which I provide on-call support and advice to commanders, of all levels, during complex, untoward and major incident.
Twenty-Two years later I am still here wishing I had joined sooner. At times its difficult, emotional, and stressful, other times its interesting, fun, and rewarding
I started out as an Emergency Medical Technician and developed into the role of a Paramedic after two years.
After working from the same station for several years I moved into the role of a Clinical Supervisor/Team Leader with the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART). I was with HART from its original inception until I left to join the training academy in 2019 as a non-clinical educator.
What I most enjoy about my role is that I get to work with a multitude of different colleagues from across the entire trust’s region and from all different clinical levels and roles. I still attend jobs as a NILO, but these tend to be the more complex, difficult, and extra ordinary multi-agency incidents.
Being a Paramedic was never anything I had really considered, I applied through a job advert whilst in a boring customer services desk job as I needed an escape.
