The Fieldale-Collinsville Vol. Rescue Squad will be hosting a memorial service for Jim Kendrick on Saturday, April 21st, 2018 at 1100 hours. Please join us in remembering a great friend.
The Fieldale-Collinsville Volunteer Rescue Squad is saddened to announce the passing of Life Member, and former Captain, James E. Kendrick. Jim was a dedicated member, and one of the first paramedics in our department. After Fieldcrest closed, he left the area for a career as a flight medic in the Southwest U.S. and Texas. He completed his RN training and 3 years ago, passed his boards to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. He cared for patients from Coast to Coast in the US and will be greatly missed.
Captain Daryl Hatcher stated “He inspired and trained other members to excel in their patient care as he always looked for improvements.”
God speed, Jim, as you continue on your travels!
