Hello. My name is Ben. I was on a search and rescue team for three years in Colorado. I learned wilderness first-aid, survival, technical rock rescue, and many other topics. I have been serving in EMS for the last 9-years, the last two as a national and state certified paramedic. I have also spent 3-years as a professional firefighter, and I am currently working on my tactical medic certification to become a SWAT medic.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my family outdoors through hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, and mountain biking; you name it.
