Scott Page is the Information Technology / Logistics Manager for Douglas County Fire District No. 2. When Scott was growing up he was inspired by “Johnny and Roy” from the television show Emergency. While his early career took him in a different direction he always knew that someday he would become a Paramedic.
Scott spent the first part of his career as an award winning photographer, videographer and producer / director for a television station in Medford, Oregon. He also became a volunteer firefighter for the City of Jacksonville. He received his EMT Basic and didn’t stop until becoming a Paramedic. Scott was promoted to Captain / Training Officer and then EMS Division Chief for the Jacksonville Fire Department. He then went on to become a full time Paramedic for Medic 4 Ambulance in Roseburg. He has taught many EMT courses for UCC and SWOCC. Scott has also taught Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Neonatal Advanced Life Support, Hazardous Materials Awareness classes and more.
While working for Medic 4, later to become W.E.S.T. Ambulance, he was promoted to supervisor and then Training Officer. As computers became more prevalent in Emergency Medical Services, he took on a new role as the Information Technology Manager and received certification as a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. Scott has been a guest speaker at a national EMS data conference in Florida.
Currently, as the IT / Logistics Manager, Scott is responsible for managing our Billing and Field Data Collection systems as well as all other software and hardware systems. He is also responsible for ordering and tracking supplies that are used in the field. Scott is using his experience in television broadcasting to stream live training sessions over the internet to remote stations so they can participate in training without leaving their service areas.
