In Memory of Paul Winfield Smith
This event is being conducted in memory of Paul W. Smith
The Connecticut EMS Expo committee is conducting this year's event in memory of Paul W. Smith, a giant among EMS educators.

Paul's commitment was enormous and undying. His commitment to emergency medical services set a high standard for the education of emergency medical service (EMS) providers at all levels, not only in Connecticut but nationwide. There are very few people who we consider to be legends – and not just in their own minds. Paul was one of those.

Paul Winfield Smith was a leader of leaders. He always promoted a vision and championed the cause of EMS. Paul served a number of national and state organizations, Founding Member, National Council of EMS Training Coordinators; MidAtlantic States EMS Testing Committee; New England EMS Council; Founder and President, CT Educational Seminar Foundation (EMS), Founder and President, E.A.S.T. (Emergency Action Simulation Team); Founder, PracticEMS; and CT OEMS Section Chief, Training and Certification. Several of these organizations predated much of what is now done in individual states and by the National Registry of EMTs in testing EMS cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills.

He was man of the people and a very humble one indeed and an educator in every sense of the word. He freely shared his expertise and visions with all in the EMS profession. Gone but not forgotten, his good works live on. We dedicate this conference in his memory.
