Recovery Revolution Live

Reggie Davis worked as a Paramedic for 33 years, and simultaneously completed a 29-year Air Force Reserve military career, allowing him to retire at the rank of Chief Master Sergeant in 2008.

He has come to realize he had only saved several lives as a hands-on lifesaver, but possibly hundreds more by sharing his personal experiences as a student and graduate of The School of Hard Knocks. His life mission is to share his inspirational journey as an EMS lifesaver too prevention educator, and the grace that saved him from his own high-risk choices.

“It was over 30 years ago around 5:00 a.m., a young Paramedic crawled into an overturned car soaked in gasoline, blood and alcohol to witness three young victims take their last breaths, before rescuers could cut them out of the mangled wreck. At 7:00 a.m. he got off work and had his first drink of the day. His only thought of that morning’s tragic episode was how that kind of unlucky accident would never happen to someone like him.” Now in retirement from his public servant careers with 36 years of sobriety, Davis has several part-time job descriptions, like DUI Instructor, Veteran Court Mentor, Prison Volunteer and friend.

In his book “The Wretch in the Mirror, Looks Like Me”, Reggie shares his personal story of the grace that changed his heart and allowed him to change his mind. Reggie has been married to his best friend “Lillie” for 41 years and is the proud father of two adult prodigies, whose inspirational musical gifts are helping to heal some of the world’s hurts.
