EMT Terry Williams is recognized as the Queen Annes County Department of Emergency Services BLS Provider of the Year.
Terry joined the Department of Emergency Services in February of 2012 with significant prior experience in public safety. He had served as a volunteer firefighter in both Anne Arundel County and Queen Annes County and had recently retired from a successful career as an Anne Arundel County Police Officer retiring with the title of Corporal.
The EMS world was new to Terry, however he quickly found his niche and challenged himself to understand medicine at a level greater than taught in his EMT program, becoming known for his exceptional BLS skillset. He serves as a sounding board for many BLS and ALS providers, both seasoned and new, since he always offers the honest constructive critiques they’re looking for. He provides mentorship to new staff, especially when learning to drive an emergency vehicle for the first time, and exhibits patience and confidence building qualities to those staff members. Terry is the face you want to see when a medical call or a scene has become chaotic and emotions are high, he can bring reason, a calming presence and safety to those around him.
Terry is more than just an EMS provider here at QACDES, he is also our in-house Fleet Manager. Terry takes significant pride in our EMS Division fleet, managing 12 ambulances, 6 support vehicles and being an in-house resource for all fleet concerns experienced by the entire department. He works seamlessly with QAC Department of Public Works Maintenance Shop, outside chassis vendors, and after-market emergency vehicle vendors to keep our fleet in excellent functioning condition and promoting the safest working environment for our EMS clinicians.
When not working, Terry enjoys spending time socializing with friends and family, weekend trips to the beach, golfing and playing in golf tournaments with friends, participating in local benefits for public safety, playing fetch with his dogs and traveling to Florida with his wife. Terry is an absolute asset to the department, and we are incredibly honored to recognize EMT II Terry Williams as the Queen Annes County Department of Emergency Services BLS Provider of the Year!
