On December 29th, 2021, Allison J. Bloom passed away after a year long battle with cancer.
With quiet dignity, our friend and colleague continued to lean fully into a life of service following her cancer diagnosis. She died peacefully at her Williamsburg, Virginia home with close friends at her side.
During a career of more than 30 years, Allison served as an EMS attorney, consultant, coach, author and educator. She was extremely proud of her certification as an Emergency Medical Technician and had previously served as an EMS Chief of Service, Director of Training and Director of Personnel of the Easton (CT) Volunteer EMS. From 2015 to 2020 Allison served on the Board of Directors with the National EMS Management Association (NEMSMA) and was a Fellow in the American College of Paramedic Executives (FACPE). Allison led the charge for a certification program for EMS Managers and worked with industry experts and trade shows to advance the program. Along with her family and friends, the entire team of advisors at Cambridge Consulting Group is heartbroken with the loss of this precious, dedicated colleague, but we are committed to advancing the work of the organization as she asked us to do.
Allison championed the advancement of the paramedicine profession. The Allison J. Bloom Paramedicine Leadership Education Foundation has been established to help aspiring EMS leaders become credentialed Executive Officers.
