Shared from the LIFENET, INC. Facebook Page:

Bobby has been with LifeNet since 2005. He is currently a Flight Medic for LifeNet Air 2 in Hot Springs.

Bobby has been in EMS since 1979 when he became the 1st EMS Dispatcher in Hot Springs while still in high school. He became an EMT in 1980 and a Paramedic in 1987. On his days off from LN, he works as Deputy Director of Emergency Management for Garland County and as County Communications Officer. He has also been a Volunteer FF in Garland County since 1980 and is currently a Battalion Chief for 70 West FD.

Bobby is married to Sharon (former Paramedic and QI/ED Manager for LN HS) and they will celebrate their 15th anniversary this April. Hobbies include being involved in Amateur (HAM) Radio as President of the Spa Amateur Radio Club and at least one cross country road trip a year.

One of Bobby’s proudest accomplishments was brought out of a local tragedy, HANNAH’S LIGHTS. Through a lot of thought and prayer, Bobby came up with the idea and through discussions with LN Management and several local sponsors, the project became a reality. In 2015, HANNAH’S LIGHTS was honored with an AMBY Award by the American Ambulance Association for ‘Best Community Impact Project’.
