From the Classroom to the Firehouse

John Tokle
Pocatello
Microbiology, College of Science

“Five-one-five to station one” is often uttered from John Tokle’s radio. A full-time microbiology student at the University of Idaho, Tokle is also an emergency medical technician (EMT) at the Moscow Volunteer Fire Department.

And while Tokle’s day-to-day schedule is more disparate than most college students, he’s been able to find the perfect balance among his various commitments during his time in Moscow.

“U of I has all of the tools to be successful in a college career,” Tokle said.

With plans to tackle the Medical College Assessment Test in the spring and head to medical school after that, the fall 2018 graduate from Pocatello has been grateful for the opportunities to interact with faculty, become involved in research and participate in outdoor organizations like U of I’s Rock Climbing Club during his time in Moscow.

When he’s not ascending a rock face or studying in the lab, Tokle’s position as an EMT has made him realize no one is impervious to medical care. It’s also made him appreciative of the relationships he’s made with the Moscow community through a position that’s broadened his viewpoint into the “big picture of society as a whole.”
