Chief Ranger Matt Roland was recently recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians for achieving 20 consecutive years of National EMS Certification. This distinction is an honor held by few EMS professionals. 

To maintain his status as a Nationally Registered EMT, Roland completed, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive recertification program for EMS professionals in America. 

By maintaining his National EMS Certification and completing regular continuing education courses, Roland has demonstrated his commitment to providing exceptional prehospital emergency medical care. 

Roland was Nationally Registered as a Basic EMT in 2002 and has been serving the Devils Tower community since 2021. Before this position, Roland worked at many National Park sites throughout his 22-year career with Badlands National Park as his most recent prior position.  

The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians serves as the National EMS Certification organization by providing a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice by EMS professionals throughout their careers and by maintaining a registry of certification status.
