Merlin “Pete” Francis

I attended an EMT Class at Pleasant Point in 1981 and received my first certification. The emergency medicine areas sparked my interest for the remainder of my career. The immediate satisfaction of helping others during emergency situations sharpened my critical thinking skills and developed my practical skills dealing with all populations. I served 20 years as a Paramedic and Critical Care Transport Nurse in Florida. Although I spent 4 years in active duty USAF in aircraft maintenance I returned back to medicine. My EMS experience paved the path towards training and teaching American Heart Association Courses for the past 30 years. I currently work at Passamaquoddy Health Center and have since May 2016 after graduating from the University of Maine’s Family Nurse Practitioner Program. I continue to teach AHA courses and serve both Passamaquoddy Tribes with Medication Assisted Treatment Programs.
