James Jim O. Page, JD


Possibly the most recognizable of all the founding figures of EMS, James O. Page had a career in public service throughout the latter half of the 20th century that veritably is the history of EMS during that time: Los Angeles County Fire Department EMS innovator, advisor to the TV show Emergency!, director of the Advanced Coronary Treatment (ACT) Foundation, early proponent of citizen CPR, North Carolina EMS director, magazine founder, EMS advocate, attorney, prolific speaker and educator-he is, notably, one of only two non-physicians on this list. Up until his death, Page continued to be one of the most eloquent and articulate advocates for the field of EMS.
