We are THRILLED to officially introduce Lee Burns as part of our E5 Support Services, LLC team! Lee got hooked on EMS and joined the local volunteer ambulance service as a high school student.
Once at college, she became an EMT and joined the volunteer ambulance service in Saratoga Springs, NY. Lee served in many rolls as an EMT, paramedic, member of the Board of Directors, squad captain, operations manager as well as the agency’s advanced life support coordinator throughout 30+ years.
She has been involved in prehospital care and EMS education since the early 1980’s, a paramedic since 1985 and now an EMT again!
Lee recently retired from the New York State Department of Health’s Bureau of EMS director position. During her long tenure with the Department of Health, she was the Deputy Director for the Operations Unit and the regional EMS representative for the 17 counties in northeastern NY.
Lee is a certified instructor coordinator in county, regional and state EMS education programs, a speaker at national, state and regional EMS conferences and is currently an EMT with a vibrant ambulance service in Saratoga County.
Lee is a skiing member of the National Ski Patrol and serves as the patrol director for a small ski area in northeastern NY. In the few minutes of off time, Lee pays mortgage for two Labrador retrievers, skis, snowshoes, bicycles, motorcycles and camps.
With an impressive resume and a woman of many hats, we are excited to see what the E5 future has to offer Lee!
