Lindsay O’Steen AEMT / HRS President

Lindsay and her four-legged kids

I moved to Hardwick in 2015 and found HRS that same year. My wife and I joined HRS as a way to give back to our new found community and meet some new people. HRS welcomed us with open arms and has become like family over the last 6 years. I have been a volunteer in EMS for over 17 years. I obtained my first EMS certification in college as an EMR. I Became an EMT in early 2013 after becoming a volunteer firefighter and rescue diver in Maryland. In 2020 I became an AEMT. I am a Vermont instructor coordinator (IC), CPR instructor and I am the current president of HRS.

I work as a Physical Therapist by day in Lyndonville, VT at Northern Physical Therapy an NVRH practice. I hold a doctorate in Physical Therapy as well as a Masters in Healthcare Administration. I am a proud parent to two wonderful dogs who I enjoy exploring the hills of Vermont with during all the seasons. If I am not working or volunteering with Hardwick Rescue you may find me on a Hardwick fire truck. I love to explore the amazing weather in this state paddling a lake, riding my bike, running the road, trails, or seeing what new adventure I can find.

It is an honor and a privilege to help lead this organization, but it is the members that make HRS so special. We come from numerous walks of life, with a myriad of interests. I hope you consider joining us on this adventure one day by driving an ambulance, becoming a provider or just supporting us in any way you see fit.
