Founder of Mid-America Safety Services
Tony was in emergency medicine for his entire adult life. He was a NREMT Paramedic for over 20 years, and he held countless instructor certifications in emergency medicine. He was a well known and sought after lecturer for conferences all over the US. He started Mid-America as a way to bridge a gap in emergency medicine and education. He sought instructors that had the same drive and compassion for not only fire and ems departments, but also law enforcement and military as well. Tony passed away in July 2022, leaving a hole in the emergency responders community. Becca and the instructors with Mid-America continue to grow and adapt the goals and vision of the future for the business as they continue to service general public, fire departments, emergency medical personnel, law enforcement, military, and everyone in-between.
