Alex Durio

EMT - Paramedic
Acadian Ambulance Service
Lafayette, LA


Alex Durio joined Acadian Ambulance in 2008, as an EMT-Basic in their New Orleans, LA, operations. Soon thereafter, he realized that EMS combined his passion for medicine with his love of public service, and he began paramedic school. After completing his certification in 2010, he returned to his hometown of Lafayette, LA, to work for Acadian’s “Hub City” operations. He has certainly thrived in this role, and was recently named as Acadian’s 2014 Louisiana Paramedic of the Year. In December 2011, Alex placed his EMS career on hold to join the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. Gone for nearly a year, Alex returned to Acadian and picked up right where he left off. Because of his service to our country, Alex was awarded the Paramedic of the Year Commendation Medal in 2013 by the Attakapas Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. Alex is an avid outdoorsman, and spent many years in the Boy Scouts of America. He is currently enrolled in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, pursuing a degree in mathematics.”
