Dr. Pepe heads an academic EM program based at the county emergency trauma center, Parkland Hospital, and the North Texas Poison Control Center. As the City of Dallas Director of Medical Emergency Services for Public Safety, Public health & Homeland Security and jurisdictional Medical Director for the regional EMS system annually he oversees about a quarter million EMS incidents and 3,000 paramedics/first responders in Dallas and the surrounding cities in Dallas County.

An extremely distinguished academician, Dr. Pepe is renown for a grass-roots “street-wise” style in planning, implementing and overseeing a “systems” approach to saving lives. Both operationally and through clinical trials, his programs have resulted in some of the
highest cardiac arrest and trauma survival rates worldwide.
