Farewell to "Air Care Guru" Dan Storer

Published November 2004

More than 100 friends and colleagues honored the memory of Daniel L. Storer, MD, at a service Oct. 12 in Kresge Auditorium.

Dr. Storer, medical director of emergency medical services, died Sept. 21 at age 59.

"He was the guru of emergency pre-hospital care," said his friend and colleague Dudley Smith, with whom Dr. Storer developed the Air Care service. "Dan had been and always will be my medical director."

"Positive, kind and an influence on others who lived his life to the fullest," said his son Timothy Storer, MD.

Steven Carlton, MD, medical director of Air Care, said Dr. Storer mentored him for over 15 years "and in all that time he was always fair and strong, never lost his temper, but held fast to his well-founded convictions."

The ceremony ended with a slide show and a taped "Last Call" in which the narrator read out Dr. Storer's many volunteer titles.

A fund established in Dr. Storer's name will provide financial assistance to selected applicants for paramedic training at Raymond Walters College and Clermont College. The program began in 1978 under Dr. Storer's direction. He and Alan Mistler, RN, MEd, developed it into one of the premier paramedic training programs in the U.S.

Donations may be made to the Daniel L. Storer, MD, EMS Fund in care of the UC Department of Emergency Medicine, 231 Albert Sabin Way, PO Box 670769, Cincinnati, OH 45267-0769.
