Kris Kaull's Summary

Kris Kaull, B.S., NREMT-P, CCEMT-P, FP-C, with 20 years of experience in public safety – both as both a practitioner and business professional – lends a unique perspective and vision to the industry.

Kris began his career in public safety as a firefighter and EMT. He's worked as a paramedic, field training officer, ambulance service director, fire captain and continues his practice as a critical care helicopter flight paramedic. His practical background as a paramedic and former firefighter merges with his expertise in the realm of technology and education and he regularly speaks to public safety audiences on topics ranging from the applications of technology for first responders to clinical issues, leadership and the human connection.

Kris lives with his wife and two kids just north of Yellowstone National Park in Bozeman, Montana. He's an avid skier and wishes he could spend more time in the mountains.
