FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERVILLE, Maine—Today, Delta Ambulance leadership announced the promotion of two employees, Shon Dixon and Dan Mayotte, as the company's newest supervisors, selected for their significant Emergency Medical Service (EMS) certifications and experience.
Dixon of Benton, with 16 years of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) experience and more than 12 years with Delta, credits the company for inspiring him to elevate his clinical skills and become a field training officer, serving as a mentor for EMS students and new Delta employees.
He has passed the Critical Care Transport program at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, is active with Delta's Clinical Standards and Practice Team, is an adjunct professor in the company's education department, and has taken part in the EMS Supervisor Boot Camp. Dixon is currently pursuing his Associate's Degree in Paramedicine at Kennebec Valley Community College.
In 2008, Mayotte, of Vassalboro, became a full-time paramedic at Delta, and this year marks the thirteenth year he has been affiliated with the company. Throughout his career, he has been involved with a number of shifts that provided him with valuable insight into Delta's operations and his responsibilities as a supervisor.
Mayotte is also recognized as a field training officer and received Critical Care Transport status from University of Maryland Baltimore County. He has served as a call firefighter with the city of Waterville for 15 years and holds the rank of lieutenant, has attended Fire Officer School and Delta's EMS Supervisor Boot Camp, and continues to seek educational opportunities that will enhance his leadership skills. Most recently, he was instrumental in establishing an EMS First Response team for the town of Vassalboro.
"We are eager to welcome Shon and Dan as Delta's newest supervisors," said Executive Director Tim Beals. "We know their top priorities are commitment to the company, and more importantly, excellence in patient care and ongoing education. They are truly invested in the central Maine communities Delta serves."
