Southwest Louisiana native Tyler Weaver has served as an EMT with Acadian Ambulance for almost five years. He works out of Lake Charles and was previously partnered with fellow Star of Life Paramedic Mike Richard.
Tyler enrolled in college to study nursing, but found that he was not called to work in a hospital setting. He instead earned his EMT certification and has enjoyed every moment working for Acadian.
Tyler has established himself as a courteous, compassionate and professional patient care provider. He has a strong work ethic, positive attitude, and attention to detail, which have earned him respect from Acadian’s management team and Tyler’s peers, patients and customers.
In addition to his EMT role, Tyler is a new hire preceptor.
“A motto I try to live by every day is something an old school medic once told me: ‘To know one patient felt better due to my actions makes it all worth it,’” Tyler says.
He is currently attending Acadian’s National EMS Academy to earn his Paramedic certification, with plans to remain at Acadian for the duration of his career.
Tyler is married to his high school sweetheart and they have one young son. He is also an avid scuba diver and has visited the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and the Cayman Islands.
