Dr Bill Griggs is as passionate about teaching the unique skills of his craft as he is about using them. Bill is a world- renowned authority on trauma medicine and aeromedical retrieval and is one of Australia's leading intensive care anaesthetics, and medical retrieval specialists. Bill has been deployed on numerous occasions as both a Royal Australian Air Force reservist and a civilian to disaster zones and hostile environments. As a doctor, a rescuer and a human being, Bill gives people compassion, hope and empathy in even the most tragic of circumstances. I flew to Adelaide and shot Bill at the Urban Search and Rescue Training Facility for the Weekend Australian Magazine article. It was an honor to meet him.
