I’ve been working at ASM for about 3 years now. During my time here I’ve seen and admired the quality of paramedics and the higher caliber we hold our own too. I’ve always been interested in educating and helping be part of the group to make such strong, independent providers. I’m excited to begin this process of preceptor and helping our new paramedics become confident and reach their full potential.
Having been a member of the training cadre here at the Ambulance Service of Manchester for a number of years I’ve had the opportunity to further educate many of my peers throughout different stages of their careers. However, with this new opportunity I am thrilled to have the honor and privilege to mold newly licensed paramedics into competent and professional advanced level critical care pre-hospital providers. I look forward not only to upholding the expectations and reputation the precepting program here at the Ambulance Service of Manchester has maintained over the years, but also to strive to produce some of the best paramedics the Ambulance Service of Manchester and the State of Connecticut has ever seen.
ASM is proud to congratulate Emergency Medical Technician, Justin Craig. ASM would like to thank you for your tireless effort to serve our community. Justin celebrated 5 years of service on February, 1st. Congratulations Justin!

Working and precepting at ASM encouraged me to grow as an entry-level provider. The preceptors that I’ve worked with have been knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers, and held me to the highest standards. I feel lucky to work here and gain experience with emergencies, critical transports, as well as having the unique opportunity to learn ventilator management. I am excited to further my career with ASM and become the provider I aspire to be.
