2019 EMS INSTRUCTOR OF THE YEAR

Michael Aguilar
Mike Aguilar is the training supervisor for JCAS and has launched our service into a new educational orbit. We have become an NAEMT training center, we have monthly skills training for the staff and monthly run review with timely education topics. Mike has reached hundreds of people in our community with stop the bleed and CPR training. Mike has also revamped our first responder liaison program and is providing education through trained instructors that is accessible in person or by webinar.

Mike doesn’t stop with just the actual training though. Mike wants people to understand the concepts and buy into being better than we are. Mike teaches crew resource management, emergency vehicle operator safety classes and is always looking for a better matrix to the pain management issue. He wants those in EMS to be safe and smart in their thought processes and not just go through the motions. One recent example of this was seen in an email to the staff where Mike discussed the importance of determining a patients mental capacity to make informed decisions. It is the unyielding desire to confront the issues in EMS and the drive to find better solutions that makes Mike the perfect selection for EMS instructor of the year.
