    I am a licensed Peer Specialist with the State of Missouri with Youth/Adult/Veterans Mental Health First Aid and as of 02/20, also Senior MHFA and Senior Peer Support…Green Dot and QPR-qualified. Warm Line operator-qualified.

    Religious Studies major at (Southwest) Missouri State and minors in Computers and history; a member of the (Community Partnership of the Ozarks) Veterans Homeless Task Force and used to work for NAMI, Southwest Missouri.

    I attended the Naval School of Health Sciences in ’76 and also a former EMT and Instructor (Missouri) and worked a few rural Emergency Rooms as an ERT. Over 16 hours of college Psychology…

    Former Bail Bondsman and local security guard, armed and not.

    If I can afford it or fi there is compensation, I can travel for training in this program or the clergy training program…

    I am also trying to get a new nonprofit (Southern Missouri Emergency Services) to do three things:

    1) Create six (6) disaster battalions in southern Missouri to be available to FEMA and the Missouri State Fire Marshall’s Office: three battalions each…the reserve equipment at each battalion must be left in-state for training and instate disasters;

    2) National fraternity of Special Events Motorcycle Teams, manned by volunteers EMTs and paramedics, et al, that
    assist local communities in a) Missing person(s) searches
    b) Aid in disaster
    c) Security assistance, and
    d) Traffic control at special events

    (Canada already has a medical motorcycle team fraternity available under the name of White Knights)

    3) Bring the Rural Medical Assistant program from India and combine it with the U.S. Paramedic program:
    both programs are six (6) months long and I plan on combining the two programs with intensive hands-on
    practice during the year-long course.

    The Rural Medical program was developed to get the severely -ill and sick into the Indian cities where the doctors are, but with Paramedic training added to the program, a severely ill patient can be stabilized at the scene by a Paramedic…

    I need writers and administrative help to accomplish this….

    Thank you very much!
