Lack of EMTs Major Issue in Rural Areas

No matter the circumstances of the call, all Clay County EMTS are volunteers, just like the fireman. They do not get a paycheck every other week, and yet, they are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week—it’s what they signed up for. In Clay County, there are about 6,500 people living in the 10 towns and surrounding farming ground. Of those 6,500 people, about 70 of them serve in the capacity of EMT. That’s an estimated 94 people per EMT.

Article Image Alt Text
A sea of saw dust footprints, stacked boxes, and miscellaneous tools litter the ground. Through the front entrance, an area completely enclosed by glass walls, a half-finished receptionist desk waits. Around the corner, construction crews are busy piecing the waiting room together. No comfy chairs or carpeted floors can be found, but the makings of the room lay strewn about the floor. Off in the distance, a buzz saw echoes through the blank halls. Empty, half-finished cupboards and desks are found pushed against walls in more saw dust covered rooms.
