Fla. SWAT Medic Saves Shot Deputy

May 11, 2011  | 

A paramedic who regularly serves with the Putnam County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office SWAT team is being credited with saving the life of a deputy who was critically wounded.

Quin Romay was on hand when the team raided a drug house in western Putnam County a week ago. A bullet struck veteran deputy Randy Hayes, finding its way around his protective vest and lodging in his chest. Romay rushed to have Dep. Hayes removed to the SWAT van and treated until he could be transferred to a dispatched ambulance.

Romay also serves as the county's emergency manager and has volunteered as the SWAT team's medic since 1989.

Way to go!!! That's great! It goes to show that having a Medic on the Team really does help.

SWAT medics are definitely a necessity and most teams do not see the importance of them until an incident actually happens. They can be a positive tool/element to have on ones team, not only for liability, but for team health and a sense of security should the unplanned and unexpected ever happne, and it will happen....Be safe out there guys and may your teams benifit and take advantage of the resources each of your dept's have available to them. So Cal P.D. and SWAT Team Medic.
