MANCHESTER – As of April 4, 2017, ASM’s Cody Lemire has been cleared by Eastern Connecticut Health Network medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that ASM serves. His preceptors were Paramedic Supervisors Robert O’Neil and Tim LaChappelle.
Cody started at ASM in June of 2011 and graduated from the Capital Community College Paramedic program. His interest in EMS began while volunteering with the North Windham Fire Department where he now serves as a Lieutenant.
As with all precepting phases at ASM, Cody’s final approval came from Eastern Connecticut Health Network after shadowing him and his preceptors in the field as they responded to emergency calls.
On behalf of the ASM Family, we would like to wish Cody the best of luck and say we are very proud to have such skilled professionals on staff.
MANCHESTER – In early March, The Ambulance Service of Manchester received a hand written thank you letter addressed to Paramedic William Schnepp and EMT Cody Lemire. The note, as depicted below, is in regards to a transport completed a few weeks prior.
Your team was awesome! So prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, professional and funny! They took awesome care of me. Thank you! You should be proud of your crew. They Rock!

MANCHESTER — On April 29, 2016 ASM’s Ryan Bochman and Cody Lemire attended Bowers Elementary School 3rd Annual Career Day to talk to the children about ambulances, Paramedics and EMTs, and medical emergencies.
ASM performed a medical standby alongside South Windsor Fire Department partners. The standby served a dual purpose as the children were able to take tours of the ambulance and fire apparatus. Photos courtesy of Cody Lemire, Cheryl Everest and Brad McDonald.
In a letter dated February 20, 2013, a patient’s daughter wrote the following:
With this letter, I would like to express my gratitude to Heather D. and Cody L., who transported my father from Hartford Hospital to our home on February 13th. My father is very ill, and they both did everything possible to make him feel comfortable during the ride home. I am impressed with how considerate and caring they were.
Our family has had a lot of experience with medical staff and services, and Heather and Cody really stood out with their personal and professional qualities. I am so grateful for people like them who make the world a better place and wanted to make sure that I express my appreciation. They truly made a difference for my family and me that day. Thank you for much from the bottom of my heart.
