Paramedic and Operations Supervisor - South Region
Brett Dragun

American Medical Response
Las Vegas, Nevada

On October 1, 2017 Brett was among the first wave of initial responders to the Route 91 Festival shooting. After attending to a truck full of injured patients, he immediately assumed a leadership role. He began collaborating with fire command and assisted getting transport units to anyone that needed it. He ensured a proper response from AMR.
 
As the night transitioned into light, he did not stop working on the incident. He began checking on crew members and making sure they were OK. He spent time with anyone that wanted to talk it out in the days that followed. In his more than eight years of service with AMR, Brett is known as the encourager, mentor and consummate professional. He has also served on four disaster deployments where he remains the same caring individual. He encourages EMTs to further their education, volunteer their time for the disaster response team, or even read to elementary students. His colleagues know Brett as someone who is always available for them and is the calm in the midst of crisis.
