Employee Profile: Gerald

I have been with LifeNet since January 2008. I worked as an EMT for a few months and then obtained my Paramedic certification. Currently I am a Lead SSC/CTO.

I have always wanted to help people in some way. EMS was my calling. I love to fish or just ride around the lake, hang out with my nephews and fly Rc Helicopters and drones.

I’m a sucker for new Tech and video games. If I’m not at work then I’m probably on the lake, at the gym, or deep into a video game. I like turtles.

If you absolutely have to travel be prepared to be stranded for a long period of time. The roads are icy and they will be hard for the first-responders to travel on. Response times will be lengthy.

The biggest issue faced by our area in times of inclement weather is always the traffic on the roadways. Please if it is not necessary stay at home and off the roadways. If you absolutely have to travel be prepared to be stranded for a long period of time. If the roads are bad for you, then they are also hard for the first-responders to travel on and their response times could be lengthy. Be aware of your surroundings and try to give specifics on your location if you are stranded or in a crash, this also helps with the response. The best tip we can give you is to stay home and don't get out. Be careful and stay warm. ... See MoreSee Less

Just a reminder from our friends at ICY ROAD SAFETY.COM: You don't have the skill to drive at normal speeds on icy roads.

A factor in many of the serious and fatal crashes is overconfidence in one's abilities and/or equipment (traction control, antilock brakes, stability control, good tires). Some feel that they have sufficient experience in winter driving, and can therefore continue normally (at or above the speed limit). But a fishtail on ice that occurs at highway speeds is usually unrecoverable by even the most quick-witted and experienced drivers. Practicing slow-speed slides in parking lots is useless for what happens to a vehicle at highway speed. A person who enters a high-speed slide will quickly learn that it is something they can't handle - but all too late.

Go easy on your brakes
Brake application is a common trigger of slides that result in a loss of vehicle control. ABS (antilock brakes) do not work well on ice and snow, and often will lock up your wheels regardless. Sliding wheels are uncontrollable, that is, steering input will not change the vehicle's direction if the wheels are sliding.

I don’t think anyone will really complain there.

Now what is that all about?

What does diversion mean in this context
