A Little History
National Set Medics started out as Texas Set Medics in 2012. In the years since we have grown so fast and wide that a name change was in order.
Dan Schlund, owner and paramedic, received his first EMT cert in 1991 and worked both emergency and non-emergency ambulances in the Los Angeles basin. Dan left the ambulance and hopped onto the sets of LA as a set medic. Dan changed directions and pursued his dreams of doing stunt work. In the years that followed Dan produced, coordinated and performed stunt work in TV, Film and live shows in Europe and Asia. In 2005 he became The Rocketman and professional flew a jet pack for countless events in over 25 countries, on 6 continents. In 2007 Dan married his ex-girlfriend from high school and had a son. After so many years of risk taking, he decided to switch to a safer, less anxious career and became a paramedic.
Dan worked for CareFlite in Dallas and was a volunteer Firefighter. During that time, Texas Set Medics was born and soon became a full time occupation. Today we hire hundreds of medics every year and provide true turn-key medical solutions for the entertainment industry.
Dan's unique blend of experience on both sides of the camera (as well as both sides of the gurney) gives him a distinctive awareness to the challenges of on-set medical care. Particularly in the world of reality where things are less predictive and help may be far away.
