PRN Ambulance has strengthened its operational leadership in the field with the dual promotions of Alicia Foggmen and Bradford Adkins to Station Manager roles in Carson and Glendale, respectively. Alicia rises to the managerial role from a number of years in the PRN ComCenter while Bradford has served most recently as a PRN EMT. Each has a bounty of EMS experience.
Alicia is an EMS veteran of more than 10 years who found a home in PRN when she joined the company as a Call Taker in 2010. She eventually earned promotions to Lead Dispatcher and Communications Training Officer, where she trained potential ComCenter candidates and other communication personnel.
An avowed patient advocate, Alicia was driven to help those in need after witnessing the tragic death of a family member; she knew she wanted to be a paramedic from that moment forward. Soon after receiving her EMT certification in 2005, Alicia began working in Arizona’s 911 system. She experienced both rural and urban EMS, responding with lights and sirens to calls so rural that her crew would be the only resource available systemwide to respond to many patient emergencies. Alicia gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience by completing a paramedic certification program in 2008 while still in Arizona. Upon returning to Southern California, she continued in the EMS field as a Field Training Officer throughout Los Angeles County.
A more recent addition to the PRN team, Bradford has a wealth of EMS experience. He joined PRN in January 2016 as an EMT, bringing 27 years of EMS know-how along with him. Bradford has held numerous managerial positions in EMS in which he supervised EMTs, paramedics and nurses, which is invaluable to his new role with PRN. For the past 13 years, Bradford has given back to the community in his free time as well, volunteering as an EMT Sheriff Air Medic for a sheriff’s department.
Bradford’s accomplishments over the years include exemplary clinical performance reviews, commendations from several political constituents, and a Medal of Valor in 2014 for his teamwork, training and bravery exhibited during an active shooter incident. He is excited to bring forth commitment, dedication and teamwork as he assists with the dynamic growth of PRN.
