Dave Holleman began his EMS career with Superior Air-Ground Ambulance Service, Inc. in August 2000. He currently serves as a Paramedic, and is part of the Superior leadership team as a manager within the Special Events Division. Dave is an integral part of a team that is involved with many sporting events, concerts, festivals, and the Chicago Marathon.
While still providing excellent patient care at many events working as a Paramedic, Dave has the additional responsibility as Disaster Response Manager, a role he has thrived in since 2009. As Manager of the Special Response Team, Dave ensures that all responders are properly credentialed and meet all qualifications to be able to assist on a national response.
Dave has been on ten deployments to date, recently taking a group of 25 employees to New York to help with the COVID-19 response in March 2020. At a time when little was known about the pandemic, Dave and his team knew they could at least assist in providing excellent patient care while also giving some relief to other responders.
With his twenty-one years of experience, Dave has consistently seen other opportunities to assist those in need. He has previously organized multiple volunteer opportunities for coworkers including providing meals for families through the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Recently Dave has been a blood donation coordinator, hosting multiple blood drives at our station to help those in our community.
During his free time, Dave enjoys spending time with his wife, Jeanette, their two sons, Vince and Jack, and their four rescue dogs.
We are proud to call Dave Holleman one of our own and nominate him as a 2022 Star of Life recipient.
