Our final new Paramedic is Dylan LaMontia. He is proud to be joining Virginia Beach EMS as a paramedic. His volunteer and career history span 17 years and cover a wide range of emergency service disciplines.
In 2003, Dylan became a firefighter and emergency medical responder. Shortly after achieving his EMR, he earned his emergency medical technician certificate. Dylan brings with him 16 years of prehospital patient care (12 of those years are at the paramedic level).
Additionally, he has trained and functioned in other emergency service roles, including fire suppression, engine pump operation, small to large scale search and rescue operations, as well as specialty rescue operations performed on land and in water.
He is most proud of becoming an EMS educator at the college level and becoming a lead paramedic.
In his spare time, Dylan focuses on working towards a master’s degree in healthcare administration with an emphasis in emergency medical services. Otherwise, he is often out with his dog named Medic, catching up with friends, or at the gym. When time and finances allow, his favorite activity is to travel.
Thank you Virginia Beach EMS for sharing the Dylan’s story and photo.
In 2019, the Volunteer Rescue Squads of Virginia Beach responded to over 48,000 calls for help.
