David Krogedal and Marvin Qualley were recently recognized by the board of directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians for achieving 20 consecutive years as Nationally Registered EMTs.
This distinction is an honor held by few EMTs.
To maintain their status as Nationally Registered EMTs, Korgedal and Qualley, complete, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive recertification program for Emergency Medical Technicians in America.
They not only complete courses to refresh their fundamental knowledge and skills but also attend a minimum of two hours per month of additional continuing education courses to advance their knowledge on new lifesaving skills.
By maintaining their Nationally Registered status and completing regular continuing education courses, they are among the few elite EMTs with the most training in pre-hospital emergency medical care in the nation.
Krogedal and Qualley are both volunteers for the RMC ambulance service which provides emergency services to the Culbertson, Froid and Bainville areas.
Krogedal farms and ranches in the Froid area.
Qualley farms west of Froid and is a bus driver for the Froid School District.
