During the course of a Paramedic program, a student will invest over 1200 contact hours for lecture, lab and clinical. Firefighter-Paramedic Brant Gammon completed his training, passed the test and was ready to graduate.

His current medical battle with metastatic brain cancer has taken precedence and caused him to be unable to attend his Paramedic graduation this past August. The Palm Coast Fire Department was joined by the Daytona State College EMS program during the Transfer of Command Ceremony. The college had unfinished business; they needed to present Brant his certificate of completion and his Paramedic patch. Daytona State College of Emergency Medical Services Program Manager Chief David McCallister and Lead Instructor Georgia Jenkins presented Firefighter-Paramedic Brant Gammon with his Certificate of Completion for Paramedic School. It also afforded the opportunity to his wife, Josie, to be able to pin him with his Fire-Medic Badge.
