Century Ambulance Service
2020 Florida Star of Life
Jeff started his employment with Century Ambulance Service as a paramedic in 2016. In his time with Century, Jeff has demonstrated leadership, enthusiasm, and a drive to improve himself and others around him. Jeff is tedious at what he does and makes sure things are done correctly.
Jeff has elevated his education by becoming a critical care paramedic and assisting in the implementation of Century’s critical care program. He has worked to bring in higher acuity drugs and equipment to make the program function at its highest capacity. The critical care unit piloted a tele-stroke program, during which Jeff became the point person, and has done a fantastic job. Jeff is continually looking for innovative ways to advance our critical care unit.
In the same way he has helped the critical care team, Jeff has also assisted in our training department by becoming an instructor and teaching our crews special event training. Jeff maintains our crews and staff for our NFL contract and is on the field every game. He also aides in teaching our internal vent 101 and vent 102 classes, which provide our crews with basic and advanced ventilator training.
Jeff has always led by example. He is an exemplary employee, has a thirst for knowledge, and has an amazing work ethic. Century Ambulance Service is honored to nominate Jeffery Avinger as a 2020 Florida Star of Life.
