Speaker Bio-Robin House, RN, CEN, CFRN, NRP
I am a retired chief fire officer with over 20 years’ experience in prehospital care. I have been exposed to a myriad of leadership styles, changes in strategy and tactics, technology, and emerging attitudes of multigenerational crews. I am also a paramedic and certified registered flight nurse, having worked in ground EMS and critical care rotor wing transport for over 18 years. Currently, I am employed as a Flight Nurse by Erlanger LifeForce (Chattanooga TN), and as a relief apparatus operator for Paulding County Fire Department. Additionally, I serve as a mentor/instructor for the Every Coast Helicopter Operations (ECHO) Future Flight Crew program and have been published in Fire Engineering and FireHouse Magazines. My career has made me a student of work ethics and how they manifest in team dynamics; particularly at task level. I believe that every person has capacity to be the change. It’s time to take back WORK.

Providing care for a close friend, who survived a motorcycle crash and then spent nearly two years recovering, lead Roscoe to a career in EMS. A Rome native, Roscoe attended Coosa Valley Tech for EMT(1999) and Paramedic (2002) courses, and was motivated by the influence of educators Glenn Downs and Larry Vandegriff to strive for clinical excellence.

In recent years, Roscoe launched Absolute EMS Solutions to provide EMS consultation in the areas of training and education, efficiency, risk management, recruitment, and retention.
