National EMS Week

May 22, 2013

Murray County EMTs are volunteers, which means when the scheduling calendar comes out the individuals fill in when they are available to be on scheduled call.
By: Kristel Nelson

During National Emergency Medical Services week, we'd like to recognize the tremendous role that EMT's make to improve health in our community. The around-the-clock dedication to providing emergency care is greatly appreciated. When reviewing the statistics you can see that our EMT's are very busy throughout the year. In 2012 they made 422 runs and in 13 different instances they ended up using both rigs at the same time.

A Murray County EMT makes $2.25 for being on call and $2.50 on the weekend (Saturday and Sunday). If paged out they make $12.25 an hour during call time.
