Christopher Lee has been a fixture in Hawaii’s EMS industry for more than a decade. Tippy, as he’s known, helped start AMR’s Hawaii air ambulance program four years ago and often assists on transports from Hawaii back to the mainland.
Tippy’s positive attitude is infectious and his ability to connect with others is remarkable. That includes the EMS students Tippy helps teach and his patients.
Several years ago, Tippy was part of a team that flew a man who suffered a spinal cord injury while on vacation back to the mainland. Tippy demonstrated incredible compassion toward the patient and forged a strong connection with him that has endured. Recently, Tippy was able to be present when this man realized his goal of getting back in the water at the site where he was injured.
