Kyle Davies began with San Juan Island EMS in fall 1999, first training as a volunteer EMT. In 2011, he left a full-time position with San Juan Island Fire and Rescue to expand his emergency service knowledge and skills to train as a paramedic with Seattle Medic One. Since completion of the program in summer 2012, he has served San Juan County Public Hospital District 1 as a full-time paramedic. In addition to emergency response duties, Davies serves as the safety officer for EMS and as a trainer of fire and ambulance fleet operators.

“The greatest rewards of my career have come out of problem-solving and teamwork, often while responding with our emergency service partners,” said Davies.

Over the course of his career, Davies has witnessed the growing need to improve community health investment, particularly in senior wellness, and was appointed to the San Juan County Board of Health in 2016. He also contributes to committee work under the Community Health Improvement Consortium working to improve access to services for at-risk populations in the county including the development of community paramedicine services.

“I appreciate the opportunities I’ve had living in this island community and the trust shown to help care for residents and visitors in this way,” said Davies.

When not on the job, or engaged in community service, Davies likes homesteading, travel, time in the wilderness, and reveling with friends. If you have thoughts or ideas, don’t hesitate to contact Davies through EMS at 378-5152 or at kdavies@sanjuanems.org.
