MANCHESTER – As of October 2, 2014, ASM’s Jeffrey Rasmussen has been cleared by Eastern Connecticut Health Network medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that ASM serves.

Jeff’s preceptors were  Paramedic Supervisors Melissa Osborne and Bob O’Neil. 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, Jeff’s final approval came from Eastern Connecticut Health Network after shadowing Jeff and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

Jeff started at ASM as an EMT-Basic in 2010 and graduated from the Hartford Hospital-Goodwin College Paramedic Program. 

On behalf of the ASM Family, we would like to wish Jeff the best of luck and say we are very proud to have such skilled professionals on staff.
