Jeff McElroy is the Cypress Creek EMS Volunteer of the Month for February. Jeff became a CCEMS volunteer in 2003. He took a few years off due to full time job requirements, but says he returned as soon as he could which was on December 3, 2017. He is a non-medical driver who, since his return, has logged a total of 378 hours at one of Cypress Creek’s busiest stations, Medic 501.
Jeff says he got interested in EMS after doing a few ride along shifts with Montgomery County in the late 90’s. He actually did those ride alongs with Holly Pichette who is now Cypress Creek’s volunteer coordinator.
Jeff says he enjoys helping people and doing whatever it takes to make their day a little better. He also says, “I really enjoy working with everyone at CCEMS. I feel like it’s a huge family and that is always helping each other and the community.”
Just this week, Jeff received his NREMT Certification as an Emergency Care Attendant. He plans to continue on to further certifications as his work and volunteer schedules allow.
Jeff is District Manager for Avis Budget Group which is the parent company of Avis, Budget, Payless and several other rental car companies worldwide.
