American Flags Available for Pulaski County Gravesites on Memorial Day

Culver-Union Township EMS Director Hires Paramedics

New paramedics joined the Culver-Union Township EMS staff.

EMS Director Kathy Hart notified the Culver Town Council members on Tuesday night that she was able to hire three new paramedics to join the department. 

The struggle to find paramedics has been a region-wide issue for several years.  Hart previously shared that surrounding departments utilize paramedics for overtime so sometimes they’re not available to work at the Culver department. 

The Culver Town Council members approved an ordinance amendment in 2017 that increases the hourly wage for a new advanced paramedic to a range from $10.00 to $15.50 an hour.  With wage increases since then, it is higher now.
