Specialist Medic

Our Medic Specialist program provides additional scope of practice to our advanced providers, including the ability to provide on-scene technical support to high-risk situations, mass and complex patient events, and also have an expanded skill set including the ability to perform suturing, needle decompression, advanced assessment skills and clinical skills that may be utilized in disaster situations to assist medical personnel.  

Although our command team members are identified by their ranks on their administrative uniforms, in the field they wear a standard uniform on a regular shift and wear their certification markers outlined below to ensure the public and other professionals responding to the scene are aware of their qualifications.  

 

The only person wearing a different marking is in the event that there is a operations supervisor assigned to the shift.  The field supervisor will be identified with a 2 maple leaf epaulette marker.

 

If you have any questions, or concerns during a shift, you are welcome to reach out to the field supervisor who can assist you.
