  • I was in that first EMT class at Sturdy Hospital in 1974, brand new to EMS. Rick was helpful and knowledgeable and always willing to humbly display his experience. Always had a sense of humor.  When returning the the Attleboro Falls station, he coined the phrase Engine 54? Off the Falls! Always gave me a chuckle!  RIP Rick.
