Charles “Chip” Smack, Paramedic – Lead instructor

Charles Smack PicMy first motorcycle experience was a dirt bike that I could never seem to get enough of. My father owned a 175 which I always seemed a passenger of. The first bike I personally owned was a 1979 Honda CB750K. I drove it daily until one day I blew out 3rd gear and then we had kids. I looked around for years for something that I wanted and found a 1985 Honda Goldwing GL1200 Aspencade. In my first full year I put over 10,000 miles on it going back and forth to work including a few day trips and group rides. I currently belong to our church’s riding group of over 400 riders and participate in the Patriot Guard. I attended my first ERC training this summer, which I highly recommend to all riders. My wife and my youngest daughter ride with me frequently.

I’ve been a paramedic for over 25 years. My most recent experience was in a high volume area as a supervisor. I have treated several patients of motorcycle accidents over the years. All of these were the result of speed and/or the negotiation of a turn. I have been a CPR instructor for most of my career and an instructor for other EMS programs including adjunct faculty for EMTs.
