Ryal Wood,  Flight Paramedic

Agency Operations Manager

Cody came to 9 Line after moving to Nebraska from Northeast Colorado, where he had been working as a paramedic, as well as serving as an army medic in the National Guard since 2015. Cody is our Agency Operations Supervisor and has been an incredible leader for our team.

In his spare time, Cody loves to spend time with his family, golfing, and hanging out with his Great Pyrenees pup. We are so proud of him for completing his critical care and flight certification and we are excited to see where he leads our company!

Nate Thallas, Critical Care Paramedic

CISM Program Coordinator

Bailey joined the 9 Line family in 2020 as an EMT. After completing her Bachelors Degree at University of Nebraska, she realized her dream of working in EMS after being a very active volunteer on her local EMS squad and immediately applied to work at 9 Line.

Her role as the Corporate Administrator makes her responsible for updating our systems with policies, procedures, and human resources information, as well as employee onboarding and certification tracking. These are just a few of her responsibilities. When she's not at work, she is a loving mommy to her little girl. Bailey is an awesome addition to our team and keeps us all in line! 

Meet some of the providers that are the reason we can provide exceptional patient care in our communities. We are fortunate to have some amazing leadership and their knowledge and experience is the reason we are able to do what we do every day!

Meet Our Leadership

Thomas Bryan, EMT

​Logistics/Fleet Management

Nate came to 9 Line in 2020 after having served the Omaha-Metro area as a paramedic for the last 10 years. As a skilled and experienced provider, he brings a lot of passion and wisdom to our team. We all know that working in medicine is a stressful job, so Nate's job as the Critical Incident Stress Manager is very important.

Nate has created a proactive program for supporting our employees' mental health so they can continue to provide advanced care in stressful environments. Nate is a loving husband to Melanie and a new daddy to baby Quentin. We are also excited to announce his new certification as a Critical Care Paramedic, which he has worked so hard to obtain this year. Congrats, Nate!

Thomas Bryan is an EMT in Kansas and began his career with 9 Line Med in October 2018. Since then, he has become a vital member to our team. Thomas brings many different experiences and skills to the table, having worked in rural fire and rescue, along with an extensive knowledge of mechanics and operations.

He manages our fleet operations and his job is to constantly make sure our patients, crews, and ambulances are safe on the road. Whether that means mechanical maintenance, fleet logistics, or operations, he keeps our trucks and stations moving smoothly and safely every day.

Brianna joined us in 2019 after having worked in inter-facility transport in Lincoln for 4 years. She began working as a paramedic in both Nebraska and Kansas. She has helped implement a few of our programs including a new trauma training program, EMS standby program, and the EMT Transport Services program. She will be attending the critical care program in the spring and hopes to obtain the critical care transport certification. In her spare time, she loves to hang out with her pup, Jax!


Ryal came to 9 Line in 2021 after having worked as a provider in the Lincoln area for the last 5+ years. He has an abundance of knowledge in inter-facility transport and operations.  He is not only one of our flight paramedics, but he handles operations for the company on a daily basis.

Ryal is a flight medic in the National guard, married to the beautiful Mandi, and has 4 kiddos all under the age of 8. We don't know where he finds all that energy, but we are so fortunate he chose to work with 9 Line. He is an exceptional addition to our leadership and we are very excited to watch the Lincoln Station grow under his guidance!
