Miguel has worked for LifeNet since 2016 and is currently a paramedic in our Hot Springs Division.
“I became a paramedic to be in a different environment. I didn’t want to be limited to an office desk or a factory building. I enjoy being able to be outside with the community,” he said, describing why he got started in EMS. “I enjoy the diversity at my job. While some calls might be similar, they always have something new to offer.”
The thing Miguel enjoys the most about working at LifeNet is his coworkers.
“Everyone comes from a different background and offers something, whether it’s knowledge or a new perspective,” he said, describing the team he works with.
For others considering a career in EMS, Miguel offers this advice: “Make sure you have your mind in the right place. Everyone depends on us at their worst moments. Place your needs behind those who are calling for help.”
When he is not at work, Miguel enjoys spending time with his family and friends watching a ball game.
