75th Air Base Wing Public Affairs
/ Published March 29, 2020
Editor's Note: The “AFSC Frontlines" series is a recurring feature that puts the spotlight on some of the civilian and military Airmen on the "frontlines" supporting our mission, people and families during the COVID-19 crisis.
Daniel S. Gallegos is a training officer and EMS supervisor for the 775th Civil Engineer Squadron Fire and Emergency Services. His hometown is South Lake Tahoe, California, and his hobbies include flying airplanes, hunting, disc golf, and hanging out with his family. At work, he conducts and certifies required training for the F&ES Flight to ensure quality of responders for the community. In addition, he manages the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program including response criteria, equipment requirements, and responder certification.
His experience working on the COVID-19 frontlines:
“I’ve been attending daily meetings with the state, the county, the medical group, and local providers to ensure dissemination of the latest response information, guaranteeing fluid patient care and transport between agencies. Also, providing EMS providers with information to keep them and their families as safe as possible during and post patient care. In addition, I develop and conduct training in conjunction with temporary response standards due to the pandemic, as well as procure equipment and PPE (personal protective equipment) for EMS provider use and decontamination.
Daniel, Team Hill thanks you for your service!
