MANCHESTER – As of May 23, 2012, ASM’s Rory Leslie has been cleared by Eastern Connecticut Health Network medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that ASM serves.
His preceptors were Paramedic Supervisors Vinnie Maston and Beth Sheils. The full precepting phase can take ten to 12 weeks or more as the paramedic is prepped for the realities of the field. As with all precepting phases at ASM, Rory’s final approval came from ECHN after shadowing Rory and his preceptor (by proxy) in the field as they responded to emergency calls.
Rory became interested in EMS after leaving active duty status in the Army. He became certified as an Emergency Medical Technician through Code One Training Solutions in the Spring of 2009 and was hired by ASM in December 2009.
Rory completed paramedic studies at Goodwin College/Hartford Hospital’s Paramedic Program in December 2011 and is now an adjunct instructor for the program. He also completed Tactical Basic Life Support Course and the CPR Instructor program. His goal is to become an EMS Instructor and finish a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science. Rory recently moved to Manchester from Vernon, CT.
On behalf of the ASM Family, we would like to wish Rory the best of luck and say we are very proud to have such skilled professionals on staff.
