Bruce Krauter, Chief

Chief Bruce Krauter

Chief Krauter began his career in Paramedicine with Windsor Provincial Ambulance in 1983, while quickly progressing to the rank of Supervisor in 1986. In 1988, Chief Krauter joined Sun Parlour Ambulance where he was promoted from Paramedic to Supervisor and ultimately served as Deputy Chief of Operations in Chatham-Kent from 2000 to 2011. 

Chief Krauter joined Essex-Windsor EMS as a Deputy Chief of Professional Standards in December of 2011 and was appointed Chief of Essex-Windsor EMS in July of 2014.  In addition to his experience and training as Chief and Deputy Chief, he is also a Member of the Board for the Ontario Association of Paramedic Chiefs (OAPC) Performance Standards Committee and an active member of the Paramedic Chief Mentorship program.

Chief Krauter has an incredible passion for emergency medicine, pre-hospital care and his community.  He has worked to spearhead educational and preventative programs like the KnowYour911 awareness campaign and the Vulnerable Patient Navigator program, both of which help to enhance the delivery  of care and support residents in better understanding their emergency services. Most recently, Chief Krauter has accepted the honour of leading the "Ontario Paramedic Monument" project, a profound movement, giving recognition to those who have dutifully served as Paramedics in Ontario.

Chief Krauter is also a loving and devoted family man.  He and his wife Beth have raised both a daughter and son. They love to travel, having just recently returned from a 3-week hike across Portugal and in his down time you will often find him at home, by the fire, enjoying time spent with his family and friends.
