Coleman Richards has worked for the City of Boulder for 4 years as a Water Safety team member, and more specifically as a Lake Patrol operator. In his job he performs daily operations such as safety mitigation and law education and enforcement. As Lake Patrol he is also the primary medical response on the lake and is trained in First Aid, CPR, civilian trauma care, as well as rescue vessel operation. This has allowed him to work with multiple response agencies throughout the state including the Boulder Emergency Squad and Rapid Response Paramedics, assisting in dive rescue operations and open water event safety. He is currently a cadet in Air Force ROTC trough CU Boulder studying operations management, and hopes to utilize both his degree and Lake Patrol experience as a Combat Rescue Officer one day.
