About Tony Eyres
My career working within the emergency service sector started within the Ambulance service and some 22 years later I am still passionate about saving lives.
I am a fully qualified operational Paramedic and have been involved in many types of incidents over the years and I am constantly trying to improve both myself and my colleague’s knowledge in saving lives.
During my career I have worked in a wide range of roles which include; Technician, Student Paramedic, Mentor Paramedic, Police Support Unit Paramedic and CBRN team Paramedic providing support to other agencies.
I also work for London Fire Brigade and for the last 18 years I have gained a vast level of operational rescue experience as a Firefighter, Crew manager, Trainer and currently as a operational Watch manager. These differing roles have enabled me to effectively establish what is required at many varying emergencies.
I previously spent 4 years as a trainer within the London’s Technical Rescue department. Whilst in this team I helped to deliver and develop the following disciplines: Vehicle Extrication (RTC), Line Rescue, Water Rescue and Confined Space Rescue.
I was a member of both London’s Trauma team and Extrication team and have been instrumental in pushing the boundaries of trauma within the London Fire Brigade through regular training and competing in trauma related scenarios.
I am also currently an assessor for the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation (UKRO) and assess in both the Medical and Trauma disciplines at regional and National events.
I also have experience of overseas training in both technical rescue and medical training utilising interpreters to deliver first class tuition to all levels of students.
