MANCHESTER – As of September 9, 2016, ASM’s Michael Karanda 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 Supervisor Melissa Osborne and Paramedic Joshua Traber.
Michael started at ASM in February of 2016 and graduated from the Capital Community College Paramedic program. He started off in the medical field in 2011 after receiving his EMTB Certification. He has been a member of Glastonbury Volunteer Fire Department since 2008.
As with all precepting phases at ASM, Michael’s final approval came from Eastern Connecticut Health Network after shadowing him and his preceptors in the field as they responded to emergency calls.
On behalf of the ASM Family, we would like to wish Michael the best of luck and say we are very proud to have such skilled professionals on staff.
