03-05-2006 - Brigitte Poublon '75 - EMT Foundation President
Brigitte Poublon & Bobby Sherman
Volunteer EMT Foundation
Nicest guy in the world lives up to his image.
During a safer and more innocent time, he was a 60's teen idol. Young girls would save up their allowances to buy an issue of Tiger Beat or 16 Magazine. Pictures of him would proudly be displayed on their bedroom walls. They would watch him on television shows such as "Shindig" or "Here Come The Brides." They would play his recordings of "Easy Come, Easy Go" or "Julie Do Ya Love Me" on their phonograph players.
Today, he's a sworn deputy for The San Bernadino Sheriff's Dept, a technical reserve officer for The Los Angeles Police Department, and the founder of The Bobby Sherman Volunteer EMT Foundation.
The President of this EMT foundation is Brigitte Poublon of Leuzinger's Class of '75. She obtained her real estate license, and has worked as a real estate developer for Norton Development Inc and Homestead Group. She also majored in law and business at El Camino College and UCLA. She retired from real estate in 1996, and donates money and time to producing fundraising events on behalf of The Make a Wish Foundation, Starlight Foundation, Big Sisters of America, The Special Olympics, Los Angeles Police Reserve Foundation, and Olive Crest Abused Children's Foundation. She also volunteers her time as a certified Emergency Medical Technician.
The Foundation and its medics have attended to hundreds of people at community and charitable events. With access to oxygen delivery systems, cervical collars, splints, and the latest communications... they are able to provide valuable resources and services. There are currently 40 medics who donate their time and skills. Each EMT is licensed, tested, and re-certified every two years.
They have come through with standby and preventitive emergency services for events such as The Revlon Walk for Cancer and The Los Angeles Marathon. With a state of the art command post that can triage ten at a time, Bobby Sherman and his medics are always ready and on duty.
