National Health Transport
2020 Florida Star of Life
Randy White began as a Dispatcher with National Health Transport in 2016. Randy has since achieved his long-term goal of becoming a Paramedic, then again added to his accomplishments by becoming a Senior Specialty Care Transport Paramedic. He is known by his peers to be a quiet, motivated individual who is always willing to help and to share his experiences with new Paramedics.
In December 2018, while on an overnight shift in Miami-Dade County, Randy and his partner, Sandro Gordillo, were first to respond to an impaired driver incapacitated in a ditch. Without hesitation, Randy and Sandro pulled over to assist the driver, who was trapped in the vehicle and appeared to be unconscious from a major head injury. After prying the car doors open without any extrication tools, they began to assess the patient and determined that immediate help was needed.
They acted quickly and summoned for the help of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, which arrived on the scene, extricated the driver with the Jaws of Life, and airlifted the patient to the trauma center. Without the life-saving actions of Randy and Sandro, the driver would have remained on the road all night without help. We are proud to nominate Randy as a 2020 Florida Star of Life!
