Life-Saving Training: Mindset, Preparation & Equipment | Jonathan Heslep, EMT & Wildland Firefighter

Life-Saving Training: Mindset, Preparation & Equipment | Jonathan Heslep, EMT & Wildland Firefighter Jonathan Heslep grew up in the mountains of southwest Montana. He has worked in Emergency Services since he was 18 years old, volunteering at three different local departments since 2008. He is currently a Captain/EMT with the Montana City Volunteer Fire Department. He began his professional career with the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation as a wildland firefighter in 2011, where he still works as the Fire Operations Specialist, overseeing the Helena Unit engine crews. Jonathan also serves on the Emmanuel Church Security Team and has provided medical classes to several churches in the Helena area. When not busy with his various jobs, he and his young family like to spend their time in the mountains hiking, camping, backpacking, skiing, canoeing, and eating fajitas around a campfire. This week’s episode brought to you by: Mountain Man Medical Mountain Man Medical has teamed up with Defenders USA to bring you the Defenders USA Trauma Kit. In this kit, you will find items handpicked by Adam Winch, the founder of Defenders USA, picked specifically from his experience in the field. Adam says, “The likelihood of desperately needing and using such important medical gear and life-preserving medical training is far higher than ever having to use a gun in defense, and we at Defenders USA are here to help you be correctly equipped with the most necessary items to help sustain life in case unexpected medical trauma happens.” Pick up your Defenders USA Trauma Kit here: https://bit.ly/3UuYqH6 —————- Join our Defenders LIVE community on Locals: https://defenderslivewlorathorson.locals.com/ And get access to: Exclusive access to Defenders UNCENSORED content not posted anywhere else Early access to featured interviews and roundtable discussions Early bird access to Defenders LIVE merch and products Opportunities for discounted virtual coaching and Defenders USA classes Gift a subscription to someone you love! —————— Meet our partners: www.defenders-live.com/partners More about Defenders LIVE: www.Defenders-live.com Upcoming Defenders USA Classes: www.defenders-usa.com Also follow Defenders LIVE here: Facebook: Defenders LIVE with Lora Thorson Group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/15257...
