David Vincent, Paramedic
This experienced Paramedic joined the ambulance crewof Station 2, WinStar Casino, in March after seven years of EMS experience in Texas.
His career choice was influenced by his mother, a nurse, and his uncle, a firefighter. But Vincent prefers emergency medical response in the field. "I wanted to be able to help people on the medical side but not inside the hospital. Ambulance calls make you think on your toes."
Ryan Weger, Paramedic
Weger joined Station 2, WinStar Casino in 2008, and is first out on the ambulance. “I like the hours, helping people, and the adrenaline rush of going to an emergency.”
The many medical calls in the area have sharpened his Paramedic skills for administering intubation, intravenous medicines, and other life-saving procedures. With experience at quick action, “time has slowed down.” He serves on the volunteer fire department of his hometown of Bells, TX.
