Road Paramedics

Paramedic Staffing Pattern

Scotland County EMS operates two ALS Paramedic staffed ambulances and one Paramedic staffed Quick Response Vehicle (QRV) 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Ideally, each ambulance is staffed with two Paramedics. On occasions, when the service is not fully staffed or current staff is on vacation or sick leave, Scotland County EMS may have one part-time employ on a ambulance who is not certified to the paramedic level of care. At any given time, the service will have a minimum of six staff working.  That will include a Paramedic Supervisor on the QRV, at least one Paramedic and one other certified medical provider on each ambulance, and an EMD certified telecommunicator in the E-911 position.  EMS paramedic employees work a fluctuating work week and are expected to work an average of 56 hours a week.  Their annual work year at Scotland County EMS is 2,912 hours compared to the average 40 hour work week / 2,080 hours a year found in most traditional working environments.
