Norm Wrona is now a member of U.S. First Responders Association
I have been involved in the Emergency Response field for over thirty years with a progressively increasing scope of responsibility. I am retired (2010) as a Lead Paramedic with Sarasota County (FLA) Fire Department and currently serve as an intermittent federal employee with the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS). I am the Unit Commander with the FL-3 Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT) which is based out of the Tampa Bay area. This is a type-I (highest level) disaster response team which can deploy to an Incident of National Significance anywhere in CONUS or its territories within six hours of notification.
I have also served as the Lead Project Officer for the development of the NDMS Training Academy Project, which is designed to function as the primary training vehicle for NDMS’ 6,000 team members.
I have experience as a Field Training Officer (FTO) for SCFD, Training Officer for FL-3 DMAT, as well as past experience as an instructor for both AHA and the ARC for their BCLS, First Aid, and AED programs. I hold current Instructor-level certifications in Incident Command System (ICS), Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP), and Continuity of Operations planning (COOP). I also hold certification as a DHS/FEMA Master Exercise Practitioner (MEP).
