Paramedic, Field Training Officer
Muskogee County EMS
Brandt Hiler has always had a passion for helping others. As a teenager, Brandt began volunteering for a local fire department. He began his career with Muskogee County EMS in 2004 as an NREMT-Basic and in 2007 he received his certification as an NREMT-Paramedic. Brandt has served the citizens of Muskogee County for 13 years.
In 2015 Brandt became a Field Training Officer. Brandt says he enjoys helping new employees and co-workers, whether they are beginning their EMS career or when transitioning to a new licensure level. He is well-known for taking the time to explain and educate others.
In 2016, Brandt was honored for his service to a pediatric car accident victim. The physicians who were caring for the patient at a pediatric rehabilitation facility said, “Had it not been for the care that the patient received on the scene of the accident, the patient would not be alive today.” In 2017 Brandt also received awards for saving the lives of two patients, and was voted Paramedic of the Year by his peers.
Brandt is known for his compassion, hard work, and dedication. He remains calm under pressure, and shows true leadership by quietly going above and beyond and never asking for acknowledgement or recognition.
Brandt is admired by all who know him, most especially by his wife, Angela, and his children, Kaben and Kendall. When off-duty, Brandt enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, fishing, hunting, and flying.
Because of Brandt’s outstanding professionalism and his exemplary performance, Muskogee County EMS is honored to endorse Brandt Hiler for the Oklahoma Ambulance Association Star of Life Award 2018.
