Being Your Own First Responder with Walt Settlemyre of The Distinguished Savage Podcast

How to be Your Own First Responder

Andy talks with a great guy, fellow podcaster, and a gentleman about town, Walt Settlemyre. Walt is a US Army veteran, former firefighter, and now Paramedic. He’s been working in 911 systems for the past 30 years. He is also the creator and host of The Distinguished Savage Podcast.

He has worked in the Special Operations side of EMS as both a Tactical and Rescue Medic, specializing in rope rescue, swift water, confined space, structural collapse, and trench rescue. He built and teaches the Defensive Tactics program for the EMS system he currently works for and is an instructor for Tony Blauer’s Spear system and a Gracie Survival Tactics instructor for that program.

Walt is also a big supporter of Greg Williams and Brian Marren of Arcadia Cognerati. So they discuss human behavior and situational awareness to keep your family safe.
