Dallas Arenas

Washington, DC

Dallas became an EMT in August 2009 after losing a close family member in a motor vehicle crash. She felt helpless after her loss, so she decided to become an EMT and thought it would be a great way to help others. Dallas was hired by AMR Massachusetts in July 2010 where she gained experience running both IFT and 911 calls. Dallas transferred to the D.C. operation in 2012 after moving to the area and obtaining her National Registry EMT certification.While working at AMR, Dallas became interested in various aspects of EMS, so she applied to a local community hospital in southern Maryland. Dallas is in a dual position at the hospital, holding job titles of Hyperbaric Safety Director and Hyperbaric Chamber Technologist. Dallas hopes to further her career in EMS, so she is attending paramedic school at the College of Southern Maryland and is in her second semester. Dallas is a highly motivated individual and has hopes of obtaining an Associate’s Degree in EMS within two years. Since 2012, Dallas has been an active member of AMR’s Emergency Response Team and looks forward to being deployed as needed.”
