Cleared for Independent Dispatch: ASM’s Steeve Parent Completes Precepting Phase

Steeve ParentMANCHESTER –As of August 21, 2014, ASM’s Steeve Parent has been cleared by Eastern Connecticut Health Network medical control for independent dispatch as a paramedic to the towns that ASM serves.

Steeve’s preceptors were  Paramedic Supervisor Melissa Osborne and Paramedic Sue Allen. 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, Steeve’s final approval came from Eastern Connecticut Health Network after shadowing Steeve and his preceptor in the field as they responded to emergency calls.

Steeve started at ASM as an EMT-Basic in 2012 and graduated from the Capital Community College Paramedic Program. 

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

MANCHESTER — ASM EMT Sean Norton writes, “You may have seen several ASM employees with oddly shaped facial hair at work lately. This is not only because it looks great but we are doing it to change the face of men’s health. Movember was started to raise money for the research of testicular and prostate cancer as well as mental health.
