The Lyme Ambulance Association issued a press release today which read as follows:

“The Lyme Ambulance Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Erik Eisensmith to their EMS team. Erik has been named driver training officer for the organization and brings years of professional driver training experience to the task. He is a graduate of Wheaton College and has resided in Lyme for 15 years. As an executive of Overland Experts LLC, Erik is uniquely qualified for this important position. He and his company have taught specialty driving skills to military special forces, utility company personnel and aid workers in the United States and abroad. Erik exemplifies the professionalism of Lyme Ambulance Association volunteers. Given the gravity of the association’s core mission, we are fortunate and grateful for the deep pool of talent living in Lyme. Lyme Ambulance is staffed with residents who share a common profile: competence, commitment and compassion.
