Timber Berry, EMT-P recently became the newest paramedic working for RCAD. She has worked fulltime for the District since 2015, as an EMT. During the past twelve months she attended the Paramedic Program at Three Rivers College which consisted of hundreds of hours of classroom lecture and laboratory experience. Additionally Timber had to perform clinical experience at area hospitals and ambulance services. Working fulltime and going to school fulltime, while raising her family has been very taxing. Hopefully she finds lots of family time, while the residents of Ripley County also benefit from Timber's increased knowledge and abilities for years to come!
