Paramedic Staffing Pattern

Scotland County EMS operates 3 ALS Paramedic staffed ambulances and one Paramedic staffed Quick Response Vehicle (QRV) 24-hours a day, 7 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 7 staff working. That will include a Paramedic Supervisor on the QRV, at least 1 Paramedic and one other certified medical provider on each of three ambulances. EMS road medics 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.
