Robert Raheb has been in the EMS field for 31 years in California and New York. Starting out as a Firefighter in Southern California, he became a paramedic and has been a paramedic in New York City for 27 years and a New York State Instructor Coordinator for 21 years. Rob Raheb has held several positions in FDNY EMS, including assistant to the Medical Director and a member of the NY-TF 1 Urban Search and Rescue Team. Rob Raheb has an associate’s degree in paramedic sciences. For the past ten years, he has been the Lieutenant in charge of the EVOC program and has made some milestones in curriculum that have translated into major reductions in collisions, especially intersection collision.
Introduced to simulation training in 2003, Rob Raheb was bit by the bug and “just got it”. Realizing the benefits and potential training abilities this high-tech tool held, simulation training has added a new and exciting dimension to his vehicle training program and those benefits were obtained with a 38% reduction in intersection collisions within the first year and a steady decline every year since.
As of 2009, Rob Raheb has since retired from FDNY and accepted a position as a Subject Matter Expert in the field of emergency response and simulation training with FAAC, Inc. Rob Raheb continues to help develop curriculum and lectures on the benefits of simulation training. Rob Raheb has had articles on simulation training published, has been cited in several studies and is currently co-authoring a book on EMS Vehicle Operations.
