Jason is one of the most skilled and knowledgably EMT’s I have ever worked with.

Jason has gone “above and beyond” the typical crew member to ensure that Candidates get the training they need to be successful on the crew. EMT Lawler is friendly and compassionate to our patients and he works very hard to shine a positive light on the Division of Fire both on and off duty.”
