Wayne Testerman

Wayne has been working in EMS since 1982 and has had a distinguished career. In addition to his duties as a paramedic, Wayne has been involved in almost every facet of EMS. He established what was to become McClainGrady County EMS, worked as director for Lindsay EMS, trained hundreds of people, both lay persons and EMS personnel as a BLS Instructor, In-House Instructor, ACLS Instructor, PALS instructor and PEPP Instructor. Wayne has also been a member of our local DMAT team, a federally sponsored citizens medical disaster team that responds to domestic disasters. As BLS instructor, Wayne teaches the local school faculty, local police department employees and numerous civic group members the skills of CPR and AED use. He also teaches first aid and how to react in an emergency situation to people whom have no prior training or experience to emergencies. Wayne has spent hundreds of hours writing refresher programs for the EMR to Paramedic level responders to ensure everyone involved in our local EMS system is updated in training and skill levels and meet the DOT and Health Department requirements for relicensing. During what little down time he has on shift, Wayne is the quality Assurance Administrator for our service, reviewing every run form that is entered into our computer system. Each call is reviewed and those meeting certain criteria are sent to our medical director for his review and comments. Wayne is very interested in making sure our service provides the best patient care and that each medic follows the patient care protocols approved by the medical director. Wayne has responded to numerous disasters in Oklahoma and within the continental United States. He has provided emergency medical services during tornados, floods and hurricanes. His area of response and expertise knows no boundaries.”
