New Essex-Windsor Paramedics To Provide Better Emergency Response

Essex-Windsor EMS is hiring 23 new paramedics.

Fifteen of them are full-time.

Essex-Windsor EMS Chief Bruce Krauter says 49 part-time paramedics have already been hired and all of the new recruits should be on the job by May.

Krauter says the new hires will provide a better emergency response in the region, and will increase staffing at the Dougall, Jefferson and Ruscom ambulance stations.

He says the new paramedics will also eliminate patient off-load delays for county ambulances at city hospitals.
