Flight Paramedic Andrew Grandin is no stranger to competition. In the last six years, he has been a 5-time finalist in the Advanced Life Support National SIM Competition during the National Conference on EMS. He won first place in 2016 and 2022.

His most recent wins have been with Team Meret partner and 911 Paramedic Beth Blizzard.

Both are EMS educators and are dedicated to sharing how to bring the best medicine to the patient’s bedside.
