Taylor Edwards is one of the new members of our team as an EMT-B after realizing her interest in helping others through EMS. When she’s not working with us, the 26-year-old Farmington native spends time with her father and little sister, as well as her pets (two cats and a dog). We’re so happy she’s joined our team and we’re excited about what she’ll do for this community!
