EMS Week Spotlight Jason Stanley

In 1974 President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to recognize and celebrate members of the Emergency Medical Services.

This year EMS Week: Beyond the Call runs from May 19 – 25.

“DLA Columbus Fire and Emergency Services would like to honor Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician Jason Stanley for his efforts beyond the call,” said, DLA Columbus Assistant Fire Chief Paul Alexander.

Stanley first became a firefighter and an EMT in 1994. He joined DLA Columbus as a fire inspector in 2008. In 2010, he transitioned from a fire inspector role to that of a firefighter and EMT.

“He’s shown great dedication to the course by balancing the training with his position at DLA, his duties to the Ohio Air National Guard and recently getting married,” Alexander said.

Stanley will be the second member of DLA Columbus Fire and Emergency Services to participate in and successfully complete the program.

Forward Presence Spotlight: Royal Cline, Customer Support Represenative from San Diego, California

How long have you worked for DLA Land and Maritime? Almost 15 years

Who are the customers you serve? I primarily serve the surface fleet but I also serve carriers, U.S. Naval Special Warfare Command, expeditionary units, shipyards and industrial sites in the Pacific Ocean area of operations.

How would you describe your job to someone who doesn’t know DLA? My job as an embedded customer support representative is twofold. First, I provide direct Defense Logistics Agency representation to all Navy supply officers and logistical specialists and answer queries about DLA-managed material, processes, etc. Second, I provide direct advocacy support to supply officers ordering DLA-managed material where they need support from somebody working within the lifelines of DLA for various reasons such as emergent, critical material, out-of-stock material, etc.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job? The most rewarding part of my job is being able to work directly with the young men and women of the U.S. Navy and seeing the results on a daily basis.

What are your best memories of working here? I started out in Columbus with DLA Maritime and was the customer account specialist intern instructor prior to leaving. So, I would say my best memory is seeing my interns develop into leaders within DLA Maritime, which I get see almost every day.
