Pulaski County Emergency Medical Services’ staffing challenges appear to have returned. “In about the last week-and-a-half to two weeks, I have had two full-time employees submit their letters of resignation,” EMS Director Bryan Corn told the county commissioners last week. “So now, unfortunately, we are back to having three openings.”
Corn said he’ll try to fill the positions as quickly as possible, but until then, he may be spending more time out of the office and on the trucks, to cover open shifts. The department had experienced staffing issues earlier this year, when a shortage of paramedics caused several transfer requests to be denied.
