Hunter is our newest Safety Specialist for Roco’s Safety Services. He came on board in 2021 as a crew member for CSRT, working his way up to Crew Chief. His passion for safety evolved into a natural transition to the safety services department of Roco. He is a National Registered Paramedic, a recent graduate of Columbia Southern University – with an associate in occupational safety and health (ASP), and a member of the American Society of Safety Professionals.
Before joining Roco, Hunter was a critical care paramedic for Acadian Ambulance for 13 years. This includes multiple hurricane responses, mass casualty incidents, and neighborhood outreach programs such as Start-A-Heart CenLa – where free CPR training was offered to the public. He was also a four-year member of the Safety & Health Team for the CenLA district of Acadian Ambulance. Hunter eventually moved to the Safety Management Systems division of Acadian Companies and provided contract work for British Petroleum.
For Hunter, building trust and relationships with all workers on-site is the most rewarding part of working for Roco. He said, “Roco gives its people the knowledge to achieve, and its clients the tools to succeed.” He is starting his bachelor’s program this year so he can take his safety credentials to the next level and continue to help more companies ensure their workers get home safely.
Hunter resides in Pineville, Louisiana, where he was born and raised. When he is not on a jobsite, he can be found working on cars, cooking or doing something outdoors with his family. His daughter currently attends Northwestern State University, and his son loves computers, being outdoors and cooking. We understand there are some pretty serious cook-offs in the family!
