Why did you get involved with the local ambulance company?: “I retired from teaching at 55, and at the time I really hadn’t done much to help out the community, so I wanted to do something for the community.”

What do you find most rewarding about the experience?: “You always know you helped somebody. I was a teacher for 31 years, and you never saw the end product of what you did. You get called, you see someone in need, you get them to wherever they need to be.”
