Bill Ballard- Advsior of the Year
Bill Ballard, associate vice president of administrative and facilities services and long-standing advisor of UVM Rescue, was named the National Collegiate EMS Foundation Outstanding Collegiate EMS Advisor of the Year. Ballard has been the advisor for UVM Rescue for 17 years, overseeing many changes, including the acquisition of several new ambulances, the addition of billing for service, and the redistricting of UVM Rescue's primary service area. The National Collegiate EMS Foundation says the purpose of this award is to "honor a faculty advisor or college administrator who has given a significant amount of time and effort to the organization and success of a campus-based EMS organization." UVM Rescue is an entirely student run EMS squad operating at the EMT-Intermediate level, providing primary service to the UVM Campus, helipad, and University Health Center. It's also an active part of the Vermont EMS District 3 mutual aid plan, providing secondary and tertiary service to much of Chittenden County.
