Introducing Darren Hodge............. An unsung hero born right here in Wyndham.

From a young age Darren dreamt of one day becoming a paramedic. He fulfilled that dream by starting this role on the day of his 21st Birthday.

His career in ambulance had been rich with opportunities, working in many different operational roles that include Advanced Life Support Paramedic and MICA Paramedic. In 2004 he reached his ultimate goal after becoming a MICA Flight Paramedic working on one of Victoria’s Ambulance helicopters.

The role on the helicopter has seen him performing rescues in Bass Strait, attending the most serious accidents in the state and he was also deployed to the Black Saturday bushfires. He found himself in the middle of the 2005 Bali bombing whilst trying to get married, an incident he describes as the most horrific experience of his life.

A love of teaching the next generation of paramedics has seen him enjoy teaching roles with several universities. Darren has been a senior lecturer and unit coordinator with Monash University since 1997.

In 2019 Darren released his professional memoir, ‘A Life on the Line’, the goal in writing the book was to provide some insight into the world of a Flight Paramedic. He has delivered his stories to a range of industries that include;

  • The Grand Trauma Round
  • Qantas
  • Telstra
  • Paramedics Australasia

Darren will have his book available for purchase and will sign copies / take photos on the night.
Let’s get together and enjoy a relaxing night and enjoyable dinner at the Hoppers Club.
