One of the most knowledgeable and experienced emergency medical service administrators in Southern Nevada, Brian Rogers serves as Partner/ COO for Community Ambulance where he is responsible for all operations of the company.
Brian began his career in Las Vegas as a paramedic for Mercy Ambulance in 1988. He rose quickly as a trusted leader and soon served as director of operations. His forecasting, planning, efficiency analysis, and oversight of daily operations made Mercy Ambulance the yardstick by which other private ambulance services were measured.
In 2001, Brian helped launch Southwest Ambulance, now known as MedicWest. As the company’s managing director, Brian was critical in growing MedicWest from a startup to more than 250 medics, directors, managers, and field supervisors responding to more than 80,000 phone calls annually. Brian transitioned from the private sector to the public sector in 2008 when he became an officer in the emergency medical services department for the Henderson Fire Department.
Brian then went on to launch Community Ambulance with his partner Robert Richardson in 2010. Community ambulance has grown to handle over 120 responses per day and transport more than 90 patients per day. The company now has over 275 employees and is recognized as an industry leader in Southern Nevada.
