• Support GPD in particular

1. Worked in Gilbert 7 years and have a terrific relationship with PD
2. We are fortunate for this relationship because not the case in other cities
3. I understand fire and PD also has a very strong working relationship in SWAT and I would like to work to maintain that relationship
4. I also think that the relationship that is built between PD and Fire in SWAT is a way to spread that comradery throughout our two departments


Another opportunity to serve the community

1. I am very service oriented
2. I joined military and fire as a way to serve
3. Gilbert is such a great community and I would like to contribute to making it a safer place to live and work


SWAT provides an opportunity to belong to small highly trained group that is similar to the rangers

o Many of the tasks, environment, expectations, and training are similar to what I have experienced in the Rangers
o The Gilbert SWAT team has an excellent reputation for being highly trained and motivated
o I understand that the Gilbert SWAT team has been setting national standards
o It was an honor to serve in the Rangers, and it would be an honor to serve as a SWAT medic


What is my role

• Supportive: my role will be very different than the military
• The danger to my self is minimal
• The SWAT officers are the ones who are primarily in harms way
• SWAT medics exist for SWAT officers
• Huge responsibility that I take very seriously
• Everyone I run on as a medic I value
• But a wounded officer is more akin to a family member that has been injured than just another citizen
• The best treatment is prevention, so training hard and often is the key
