Heroes 2020: Mickey Huber Joins American Medical Response

NEW OPERATIONS MANAGER JOINS
AMERICAN MEDICAL RESPONSE’S KANSAS TEAM

Mickey Huber brings 33 years
of experience to the role

American Medical Response (AMR) announced the appointment of Mickey Huber, a veteran emergency medical service (EMS) leader, as Operations Manager in Topeka and Shawnee County, Kan. Huber assumed his new position on April 20, 2020.

Huber has nearly 33 years of experience in the emergency medical services (EMS) field, including 18 years in leadership positions. He was the assistant chief of operations at Butte County EMS in Chico, Calif., when the Camp Fire erupted in November 2018. The California EMS Authority presented Huber with a medal of valor last year in recognition of the courage and resolve he demonstrated during the fire response, risking his own life to save residents and his colleagues.

In 2002, Huber joined a California-based federal Disaster Medical Assistance Team as a paramedic and was promoted to deputy team commander in 2006. He deployed with the team in response to disasters in American Samoa and along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Huber is also a law enforcement instructor and officer who served in variety of reserve capacities.

“AMR is a healthy, mission-driven organization. Our operation in Kansas, in particular, has achieved strong results. Only the best-of-the-best achieves a perfect score from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services, like our AMR Kansas team did just seven months ago,” said Huber. “I appreciate the opportunity to share the best practices I’ve learned during my career in support of this team, our patients, and my new community.”

Huber earned his paramedic certification in 1998. He has completed several National Fire Academy and Emergency Management Institute training courses. Huber is on track to complete a bachelor’s degree in EMS administration from Columbia Southern University in 2021. He now resides in the city of Topeka.
