Ep017: Ben Vernon – There Is A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

On June 24, 2015, Ben’s life changed. While responding to a “routine medical assistance” call, he was stabbed multiple times by a bystander. The incident and the ensuing ordeal left Ben with a changed perspective.

Ben shares his story so that others, who may be going through a similar situation, can know that what they are experiencing is not their fault and that they are not alone. He wants others to know the impact this kind of event can have on a person, and how best to help someone who is going through a crisis. 

Ben has served the citizens of San Diego as a Firefighter/Paramedic with the Fire Rescue Department for 10 years and is a member of the Hazardous Materials and Technical Rescue Teams.

He is also on the FEMA California Task Force Eight Urban Search and Rescue Team (CA-TF8) and holds five specialist positions on the team: Rescue Specialist, Hazardous Materials Specialist, Technical Search Specialist, Communications Specialist, and Medical Specialist.
