Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family
and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they
do for this organization.
Allow me to introduce Colleen Long, Paramedic, who works in the
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) department. She received her paramedic training fromWeber State University and is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Cardiac
Life Support (PALS) and Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS). Colleen
is also a
Car Seat Tech and
EMT Class Coordinator and Instructor. She’s been with EMS for 11 years—two of those years serving
as a volunteer EMT basic in Wright. Colleen has always enjoyed helping
people and had the opportunity to take an EMT basic class in Wright. “My
Denny Bohne) inspired me to continue my education and to advance in prehospital medicine,”
she said. We asked Colleen what she likes most about working for CCH and
what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:
“We have such great knowledge and skilled professionals here. I have
gained many friendships and have learned so much from all the caring individuals
we have here. I also love the variety of work involved with EMS. You never
know what the day may hold and there is always something that you can
do. We are able to help people in their darkest moments and have the ability
to bring a little light back into their lives. This is truly a very inspirational
and humbling field to work in.
Excellence every day is the best part of working here and a great life
message. We are here to be the best that we can be, to help out with any
task or project—to offer a friendly smile and helping hand. Knowing
that we have made someone’s day better or that we helped complete
a project means the world to me. These are the things that help us all
continue when the days get long and hard.”
Colleen, thank you for all that you do for keeping our community safe.
We are proud to have you on our team.
