Congrats to EMS-SWAT!

New Orleans EMS SWAT medics graduated today! Sincere congratulations to all of them for all their hard work throughout a hellacious three weeks of training and education. They will be better people for it and New Orleans will have an even more outstanding emergency response team thanks to the efforts of Nick Culotta, Josh Hill, Russ Latimer, Keith Thomas and Keely Williams.

Strong work guys!

Thank you for the post and congratulations. I think that I speak for us all when I say that I am glad that it is sure was hellacious...but well worth it. The sence of pride that I feel; having completed this task that I have been hoping would to come to pass for the last 9 years, cannot be put into words. Thank you and all that attended the graduation ceremony...I know that I really appreciated it. Good luck on the selection process on the new career venture and I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you all again for supporting us...we know that it was not an easy thing to put up with!

I'm so proud of you all, I don't know what to say. Congratulations. Things like this are the reason why NO EMS is one of the best in the country and I can't wait to be a part of that again.

To all those who just finished the SWAT course CONGRATS. I talked to Nick it sounded like a good time. Sorry I missed it. Stay up on your training , when it goes down for real it is about 10 times faster and not nearly as neat. Also for all the donut eaters a quote that was once told to me" This may suck and you may be tired , but the more you sweat in peace the less you bleed in war , second place here is just the first guy dead, to loose is not an option." Stay in shape and stay frosty, I'm proud of all of you.
