Scott Lail

Fire Chief
Cleburne Fire Department

Scott began his EMS career in 1992. Shortly after his arrival into pre-hospital medicine, he became a Firefighter with the City of Cleburne, Texas. With his love for education, Scott became the EMS educator for his Fire Department and other local agencies in need. He also joined Tarrant County College in Fort Worth as Adjunct EMS Faculty. In 1999, Scott became a Flight Paramedic with CareFlite in Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas.

For over 29 years, Scott continued to work both Fire and EMS as well as Flight. He promoted through each rank, including EMS Chief and is currently the Cleburne Fire Department Fire Chief, a certified Master Firefighter, and still serves as an EMS Instructor with the Fire Department. He recently “hung up his wings” after 19 years of service as a Flight Paramedic with CareFlite. Scott still holds his Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) certification, and still maintains his flight status just in case! Scott has lectured at state, national, and international conferences with a reputation as a dynamic speaker. He also appeared in an episode of “Miracle Detectives” on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
