Danny Stanley is the type of person you'd like to have as a neighbor, especially in an emergency. Stanley, a mechanic on third shift in Winston-Salem, is a volunteer with the Surry County Ambulance Service, and the only one out of 20 reserves who is a paramedic. “In 1981 I helped organize the Dobson Rescue Squad and took the initial EMT (emergency medical technician) course in the process," Stanley said. "Soon after, an ambulance service was started. I threw my name in the hat for the reserve program and was cho sen as one of the first reserves." It took Stanley six months to complete the 120 hours of instruction to attain Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). For EMT Intermediate, he received 60 hours of instruction and learned, among other things, to begin fluids and draw blood. The top level classifies Stanley as a paramedic. It took him a year and a half to complete the 500 hours required. "I've learned a lot about anatomy and a great deal about drugs," Stanley explained. "Intensive care ambu lances carry lots of drugs, and we often need to adminis ter them as they are prescribed over the radio by a doctor." As a reserve, Stanley is required to work 16 hours a month, and he must be certified by the state. In addi tion. he’s also a member of the Dobson Volunteer Fire Department.
