Robi is the son of Jerry and Joyce Littell of New Manchester, WV. Robi is married to Tammy Littell, who is also a Flight Paramedic, and they have two sons, Ethan and Nolan. Ethan is a junior at WVU studying nursing and Nolan is a junior at Oak Glen High School.

          Robi began his scouting career in the Cub Scouts with Cub Pack 137 in New Manchester. Unfortunately it didn’t peak his interest at that time. Several years later he joined Boy Scout Troop 38 in New Cumberland. Rick Greenwood was his scoutmaster. He pushed us to be the best scouts we could be. He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in 1993, just shy of his 18th birthday. He was somewhat of a procrastinator. Robi became the scoutmaster of Troop 137 for several years. He only wishes he had more time to dedicate to scouting.

At the age of 16 Robi joined the New Manchester Volunteer Fire Department as a junior member. He is a 3rd generation fire fighter to be in the department. Robi continues to be an active member of the New Manchester VFD, helping to serve citizens of Hancock County for the past 30 years.

          At the age of 17 he was hired by the New Cumberland Ambulance Service as a dispatcher and began training to become an EMT. Most of the time he spent there was as a volunteer, he only got paid if there was a call. At the age of 18 he passed his EMT test and not long after he began to run calls as a third person to learn the hands on portion of being an EMT. For many years he volunteered to be on call for the citizens of New Cumberland and the surrounding areas, 24hours a day 7 days a week. Robi also worked for the Weirton Area Ambulance and Rescue Squad, and Cannonsburg EMS. He finally became a full time EMT with them. In 2002 he obtained his paramedic certification. Robi continued to be on call 24 hours a day for a couple more years. Robi was offered an opportunity to become a flight paramedic with Air Evac in East Liverpool, Ohio in 2009. He worked it part time until the base closed. He transferred to Wetzel County Base and became full time there. He also continued to work locally when he had time. Six years ago Robi was afforded the opportunity to work for HealthNet Aeromedical out of Moundsville, where he continues to fly out of today.

Robi is honored to receive this award. Jack Harris was a good man and a fellow scout.
