Retired Olivet teacher starts new career as EMT at Sparrow Eaton

Read Time:3 Minute, 18 Second


"It's all about community service," Michael Flood, 54, says, about his second career as an emergency medical technician for Eaton Area EMS, Wednesday, July 6, 2022. He is pictured with his dog, Denver, outside the ambulance bay at Sparrow Eaton Hospital in Charlotte.

Michael Flood was the “grandpa of the group” when he enrolled in an emergency medical technician program at Lansing Community College. 

Flood had just retired from a 25-year career in education at Olivet schools. He retired in 2019 but found he missed being surrounded by people all day. 

Flood, now 54, had spent his entire life serving the community — from his time in the military to being a teacher and principal for 25 years — and he wasn’t content relaxing at home. So he enrolled in a six-month EMT course at LCC, which ended up being mostly virtual because of COVID-19. 

“I did not ever picture this,” Flood said. “I thought if I could get a job working a day or two a week, I’d be happy. But that’s not my personality. I have to be out and active. I have to be out doing something.”
