EMS Paramedics

Finney County EMS currently employs 18 full-time Paramedics and about 20 part-time EMTs to allow for extra staffing to cover vacation, sick days, and other special events. Full-time Paramedics work 48 to 72 hours per week.

EMT and Paramedic Responsibilities
The Responders may use special equipment such as backboards, to immobilize patients before placing them on stretchers and securing them in the ambulance for transport to a medical facility. 

Trauma Center Arrival
Some Paramedics work as part of the flight crew of helicopters that transport critically ill or injured patients to hospital trauma centers. At the medical facility, EMTs and paramedics help transfer patients to the emergency department, report their observations and actions to emergency room staff, and may provide additional emergency treatment.

EMS Education and Training
After each call, EMTs and paramedics replace used supplies and check equipment. If a transported patient had a contagious disease, EMTs and paramedics decontaminate the interior of the ambulance and report cases to the proper authorities. Beyond these general duties, the specific responsibilities of EMTs and paramedics depend on their level of qualification and training. For more information on how this is determined, visit EMS Education and Training.
