Ray Levy started working for the Department of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance as an EMT in September 1993 while earning his degree in Human Physiology from Sargent College. While also working for an ambulance company in Dorchester he found that he had a passion for teaching lifesaving skills and became certified as a CPR Instructor.
As the popularity of these classes grew Ray began to teach more classes through the Physical Education program at PERD including First Responder and Wilderness First Aid. After graduating Ray became the department’s first Director of Emergency Medical Services and earned his certification as an EMT I/C and started an Emergency Medical Technician course at Boston University. The EMT program has gone on to become one of the largest and most respected in New England.
Ray went on to earn his Master’s degree in Public Health from Boston University and after a brief stint as the Director of Clinical Services for a local ambulance company he returned to Boston University as an Associate Director of the Fitness and Recreation Center. When Ray is not occupied by the world of EMS or Fitness he is pursuing his dream of becoming a professional intramural softball player and following his beloved New York Yankees. One will unfortunately find that there are a lot of Yankee fans working in the EMS and Fitness programs.
