Cambridge Area Emergency Medical Service's mission and purpose is to provide rapid, compassionate, cutting edge pre-hospital emergency medical care as well as improve the health and wellness of the citizens and visitors of our district.
My name is Paul Blount and I have the honor and privilege of leading the diverse and talented group of individuals that represent Cambridge Area Emergency Medical Services (CAEMS).
Personally, I grew up in Kenosha Wisconsin. I spend a lot of my free time with my spouse, son, and extended family and cherish that time immensely. My philosophy is family first. For fun, you can usually find me boating, water skiing, and tubing in the summer, as well as snow skiing in the winter. I also enjoy working out, mountain biking, hiking, and traveling.
Professionally, I started as a volunteer. I served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT for ten years. In my diverse and rewarding career, I have worked for smaller rural departments, and big city departments with over one million population. I have also worked for the United States Department of Defense, “Protecting Those Who Defend America”. I have worked as an EMS Chief, Director of Operations, Battalion Chief, EMS Captain, Flight Paramedic, Firefighter/Paramedic and Police Officer. I have been an EMT and Firefighter for 28 years and a Paramedic for 23 years. I am nationally credentialed as a Critical Care Paramedic, a Nationally Registered Paramedic, Firefighter II, Fire Officer I, Hazardous Materials Technician, Emergency Services Instructor, MPO Engine/Aerial/ARFF. I am also a Wisconsin Credentialed Police Officer and SWAT Officer. I am a graduate of University of Maryland, Baltimore County and Gateway Technical College, Kenosha, WI holding multiple degrees.
I am extremely excited to be here at CAEMS. It is a true honor to serve the communities of our district. Thank you all for your continued support!
