McCormick Stevenson’s Mike Krawczyk recently earned certification both as a “Nationally Certified Emergency Medical Technician” and an Emergency Medical Technician in the State of Florida. These certifications are the culmination of classes over this past summer that included lecture time, lab time, clinical rotations in local emergency rooms, and ride-alongs with local ambulance services. The drive to obtain his EMT certifications started when Mike attended a Wilderness First Aid class five years ago in an effort to make his backpacking hobby safer for himself and his fellow backpackers. He was bit by the medical bug during that class and has continued to learn more over the years, leading to the EMT classes. Mike plans to use his certifications to work as a part time EMT, in order to help people in need in the Tampa Bay area.
