Join Dr. Kim Litwack, Captain Michael Wright and Brian Randall as they discuss Community Paramedicine - what it means for you, your community and your staff. They will host a open Q&A at the end of the presentation.
Michael has been a full-time employee of the Milwaukee Fire Department since 1999 and has risen to the rank of Fire Captain. He is currently licensed as a Nationally Registered Paramedic for 13+ years as well as a State of Wisconsin Tactical Medic, State of Wisconsin EMS Instructor II, Advanced Emergency Medical Dispatcher (AEMD), and Community Paramedic.
As a Fire Captain, he currently holds the position of Mobile Integrated Healthcare Coordinator (MIH). Development and implementation of the MFD “Community Paramedic program” is now Job 1.
MFD recently graduated its “Community Paramedics” from the UW Milwaukee College of Nursing of which Michael was one. MFD is committed to serving the citizens of Milwaukee through this new healthcare service delivery model. In 2016, the MFD MIH program saw a 56% drop in 911 usage across all participant demographics.
Finally, for the past 4+ years Michael has functioned as the President of Southeast Tactical LLC. The company has trained civilians as well as the protective services nationally and internationally. Training sessions include Orlando, Anaheim, Connecticut, New Orleans (EMS World), Vancouver Canada, Las Vegas (EMS World), and Wisconsin to name a few. Our motto is “we have a responsibility to prepare.”
