Robert Rebele EMT Scholarship

Robert Rebele (AKA Bob or Grandpa) was a shining example of the EMS family. Bob was a mentor to many, while also serving as a volunteer, instructor, trainer, and paid professional for over 25 years. He touched many lives whether it was in the classroom or in the field. Bob always took time to reach out to his coworkers and colleagues to offer a hand, which often included helping with their pets. Bob made everyone feel at ease. He was well known for his ever present smile and his "long story short" stories. This scholarship is dedicated to honor Bob's memory as a professional, a volunteer, and a friend.
  • Applications for 2023 are open.
