April 17, 2017

Benjamin Diaz E.M.T has been recently appointed as the EMS Chaplain for Burholme EMS. Ben will serve as an outlet and mediator for counsel to both employees as well as the families who are affected by tragic endeavors such as sudden loss or crisis. Ben has and will continue to serve at his local Church PYC (Philadelphia Youth Connect) as a Spiritual Coach, (Elder).

Ben is very eager to take his faith based experience and translate it into a service for Burholme EMS and the many people we come in contact with on a daily basis. Ben’s local church relationship is a 2nd generation Youth Church which is also located in the same local community as Burholme EMS. As a child he was raised and instructed in a life of servanthood by his parents who are also strong in their Faith. Today he strives to lead by example by displaying compassion to less fortunate with a focus on the youth. He has served as an Emergency Medical Technician for the last 4 years at Burholme EMS. He states that his faith is a big part of why he chose to work in the health care field.


Ben has expressed a desire to bridge a gap with the community and provide face to face personal connections with the local neighbors. Ben is also bilingual which will be a big advantage in communicating with the Latino culture within our service areas. He believes that it is important to have a relationship that goes beyond a phone in call in a time of need. For this reason Ben will also be coordinating community outreach to strengthen the bond and connection that has been part of Burholme EMS founding core mission of “Not for Self, But for Others”.
