July 20 - Our member of the month is Tyler McAuley and he was chosen for his extreme dedication to Mechanicsville Volunteer Rescue Squad. Tyler goes above and beyond when it comes to answering the calls for help. Tyler came to MVRS in April 2013 as an associate member looking to gain more experience. He was originally a member for five years at Dentsville Volunteer Rescue Squad.
He earned his Maryland Emergency Medical Technician in 2014 and when he turned 18 years old he became a full active member with MVRS. Tyler is also trained in CPR, Firefighter 1, Hazardous Materials Operations, Rescue Technician, and Truck Company Operations. He is also a Crew Chief and works diligently to respond to calls. Tyler enjoys the volunteer side of EMS. He is enthusiastic and passionate about his volunteer work and says, "I love helping the community that I live in."
He also appreciates keeping his skills sharp in the field with the unique challenges that each call brings. When he is not dedicating his free time as a volunteer he can often be found at his full time job as an EMT-B with All American Ambulance (AAA), providing transports for patients as well as responding to calls at the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home.
When Tyler is not busy serving the community he spends his free time relaxing with his family. Some of his pastimes include getting out and spending time fishing with friends. Some of Tyler's goals include going back to school to earn his Paramedic and pursue a career that continues to help people. He would love to keep gaining experience and one day serve in a leadership capacity at MVRS.
