PCH Paramedics Recognized
Recently, three paramedics for Piggott Community Hospital were recognized for reaching a milestone in their careers.
Iva Fahr, Tim Fair and Robert Mullins were all recognized by the Board of Directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for achieving 20 consecutive years of National EMS Certification. This distinction is an honor held by few EMS professionals in the industry.
In order to maintain their status as a Nationally Registered EMT, they must complete, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive re-certification program for EMS professionals in America.
And, by maintaining their National EMS Certification, and completing regular continuing education courses, they have demonstrated their commitment to providing exceptional pre-hospital emergency medical care.
Iva Fahr was Nationally Registered as a Paramedic in 1997, and has been serving Rector, Piggott and Paragould since 1988. Prior to this position at PCH, she worked as a volunteer for the Rector Ambulance Service.
Tim Fair was National Registered as a Paramedic in 1997, and has been serving the Piggott, Blytheville and Jonesboro areas since 1993. Prior to moving up to the position of paramedic with PCH he worked as an EMT for Piggott Community Hospital.
Robert Mullins was Nationally Registered as a Paramedic in 1997 and has been serving both the Piggott and Rector communities since 1994. Prior to taking his current position, Mullins worked for Piggott Community Hospital as an EMT.
The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians serves as the National EMS Certification organization by providing a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice by EMS professionals throughout their careers and by maintaining a registry of certification status.
