As Protection Security Officer of Bosch UK, Tony Shepherd is responsible for the day-to-day security of people and assets - a role with huge variety and responsibility.
You might think with a job where ‘no two days are the same’ Tony would yearn for a slower pace of life away from work – well that’s certainly not the case. Six years ago Tony volunteered to become a First Responder for the London Ambulance Service (LAS), committing himself to a minimum of 16 hours per month.
As a former military policeman and member of the RAF Mountain Rescue, Tony is a first aider with hands-on medical experience, making him a perfect candidate for this incredible, life-saving volunteer service.
Recalling one memorable shift Tony said: “One evening I was sent to two separate cardiac arrests, one after the other. Happily, I was able to bring both of them back and they survived, which to me was a miracle.”
As well as volunteering his time outside of work, Tony also puts his instructor qualifications to good use by providing first aid training to Bosch associates.
