FIRE & EMS MAnagement

our staff

Ken Decou 

Was employed as a flight paramedic and employed as a first responder as a paramedic since 1982. Also employed as a firefighter/paramedic with CALFIRE. He ended his career
early, unfortunately, due to a job-related injury which required him ultimately
retire. He then went to the work for the local county credentialing agency,
which he then became very versed in the certification process of all
pre-hospital providers and individuals. As an entrepreneur at heart, he decided
to start a small business providing emergency medical care to local venues
around southern California. All of this then led him to connect with his business

Casey Wheelock 
Began his career in pre-hospital care and the fire service. He also trained and
worked as a firefighter, fire dispatcher, and law enforcement officer, so his
knowledge and experience are vast, in many first responder arenas. Casey’s
relationship with members of the Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians in San Diego County, brought an opportunity to form a company to provide fire &
emergency services to the Tribe. This is where Ken and Casey began their
endeavor together. After their collaboration, on this project, they decided to
merge the two organizations under the FIRE EMS INC. 

Steve Lasiter 

Brings 25+ years of fire service and pre-hospital emergency care
experience from working and retiring from San Bernardino County Fire Department as a Battalion Chief. He managed the day-to-day operations of the largest division within the department, in the San Bernardino Valley. He managed 7 fire stations and approximately 40 personnel daily. He also served as a department liaison for the City of Grand Terrace, working with city council and staff on all matters related to fire services within the city. Additionally, he has worked as a union representative, at multiple levels.

John Chamberlin 
Recently retired Deputy Chief of Administration from the San Bernardino County
Fire Department. He brings 28+ years of fire service experience to our team. His
experience from fire dispatch to fire administration, rounds off our team with
a very deep bench.  His recent assignment
had him managing a $250 million budget, human resources, and various other
administrative duties. He oversaw the administration and billing of the 2nd
largest ambulance provider in the County. His vast knowledge of the fire
service, community relations, contract negotiations, pre-hospital EMS administration and executive experience, allows FIRE EMS INC to prove we can manage any contract. John will be valued member of the Fire EMS family.
