I would love to see everyone more tolerant and accepting of others, even if we don’t share the same views, opinions, and political parties. If everyone ate the same food and had the same opinions about everything, life would be pretty boring.
As a part of my series about Heroes Of The COVID Crisis, I had the pleasure of interviewing Sim Shain. Sim Shain, Founder, and CEO of ParaFlight EMS and Aviation and OrganFlights.com have led an impressive twenty-seven-year career working in the pre-hospital emergency medical space. He is a noteworthy leader who takes on challenging responsibilities leading corporate, medical, and charity flights and missions, specializing in organ transplants.
In 2012, Sim was named Paramedic of the Year by the State of New Jersey for his outstanding work and dedication towards helping the greater community. Sim is a devoted volunteer who contributes to numerous well-known organizations such as Chai Lifeline’s Camp Simcha, United Hatzalah of Israel, The Special Children’s Center, Birthright Israel, and Hatzalah EMS, providing in-flight medical support to children with cancer and disabilities, free of charge.
Sim launched his career working as a 911 medic and flight medic and continues to fly patients around the world and organs around the USA. He volunteers for local first aid squads and is a nationally certified paramedic, medical escort, and flight medic.
Sim lives his passion, spending his moments volunteering as a paramedic, and exploring new ways to help others. He recently received his PADI diving certification and as a proud member of the Lakewood Water Rescue Team continues to personify his lifelong mission of “changing the world, one organ at a time.”
