Michael Schwenke

Paramedic and Lead Field Training Officer
Michael Schwenke

American Medical Response
Effingham, Illinois (Abbott EMS)

In the Effingham, Illinois area Mike has been a respected member of the EMS community for 14 years. He enjoys teaching almost as much as being a paramedic. During his career he has taught countless numbers of first responders, EMTs and paramedics. Mike excels in his teaching and wants to make sure his coworkers can meet the same level of excellence he has for himself. While Mike has only been with Abbott EMS for one year, his dedication to the EMS profession has proven invaluable to the operation.

He wants everyone to be knowledgeable and takes the time to answer questions. Mike has met with local hospitals to train them on the airways used; they had not used IGELS prior to Abbott EMS. Mike has also made time to meet with the local fire departments to let them know what Abbott is doing and how they would be able to better help on emergency calls.
