Veteran Paramedic - Kansas City MO - William "Bill" Bishop

Recommended Posts

William "Bill" Bishop passed away last night. I don't have many more details but hope to have them at a future date.

He was very well known in the KC area as one of the best medics on the truck.

I remember him well as one of my Medic School preceptors and also a great educator of stupid medic students if you had a stupid question. I don't know how many times I went to him after a ride-along and asked him why this did this or a patient did that and he would explain it in detail to where even a medic student could understand it.

The amazing thing about Bill is that he was over 400 pounds but he could do every facet of the job that any of us could, size was no obstacle to him and that is is what in the back of my mind, with my being a somewhat bigger medic, kept me going. I always thought back "if Bill could do this job, then anyone can"

Bill leaves a huge hole in the Fire Department of Kansas City Missouri and surrounding areas.

RIP Bill - go ahead, we got it brother. Last Alarm 05/26/2015
