Cleared for Independent Dispatch: ASM’s Josh Traber Completes Precepting Phase

Ambulance Service of Manchester: Josh TraberMANCHESTER – As of November 1, 2012, ASM’s Josh Traber 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 Supervisor-Paramedics Vinnie Maston and Melissa Osborne. The full precepting phase can take ten to 12 weeks or more as the paramedic is prepped for the realities of the field. As with all precepting phases at ASM, Josh’s final approval came from Eastern Connecticut Health Network after shadowing Josh and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

Josh started at ASM in 1999 as a Communications Dispatcher. He obtained his EMT in 2000 and started Capital Community College’s Paramedic Program in 2011. 

On behalf of the ASM Family, we would like to wish Josh the best of luck and say we are very proud to have such skilled professionals on staff.
