Six individuals on Maui were promoted from Emergency Medical Technician to the rank of Paramedic this month.

The students started their training in January of 2011, and have since completed a 16-month intensive training program.

Part of the training involved three months of service in Honolulu where the individuals staffed ambulances under the supervision of other paramedics.

Luke Nagle – 5 years of service – assigned to M4 (Lahaina).

Steve Rossi, 5 years of service - assigned to M3 (Kihei).

The Maui group of graduates includes:

  • Keku Likua, 3 years of service – assigned to M10 (Kahului);
  • Keoni Duey, 3 years of service – assigned to M6 (Hana);
  • Luke Nagle, 5 years of service – assigned to M4 (Lahaina);
  • Steve Rossi, 5 years of service – assigned to M3 (Kihei);
  • Andrea Moller, 3 years of service – assigned to M10 (Kahului); and
  • Jamie Pagan, assigned to M14 (Wailea).

Authorities say the promotions only happen once every five years or so.

Andrea Moller – 3 years of service - assigned to M10 (Kahului).

Jamie Pagan, assigned to M14 in Wailea.

Maui medics had more than 14,000 requests for ambulance response last year.  They serve a tri-isle community with a total of 11 ground ambulances and one medevac helicopter.

The intensive program is aimed at providing advanced medical care to the residents and visitors of Maui County no matter where, when, how or to what extent they become sick or injured.

The Maui County Paramedics Association staffs 911 and transfer ambulance personnel for American Medical Response, who is contracted by the state Department of Health to provide ambulance service for Maui County.

Anyone interested in EMS careers should contact the Maui EMS training center at 244-4063.

    Wendy-
    Youve got Luke’s photo caption twice. The second caption should be that of Steve Rossi. I know both of these gentleman. Luke will probably go and jump off a cliff knowing that some people may he has the features and looks of Mr. Rossi.
