Paramedics continue to cycle out of the Pulaski County EMS department which leaves the department shorthanded.
Brandon DeLorenzo from Pulaski County EMS told the commissioners this week that they are still working on getting paramedics at the department and to keep them there. Paramedics are in high demand and in desperate need at the Pulaski County facility.
The Pulaski County EMS staff members are looking for a new ambulance as the refurbished ambulance can not be certified.
The ambulance was damaged in a fire at Wagner Performance Diesel Repair near Star City on Feb. 7. In the last meeting of the Pulaski County Commissioners, it was reported by the county’s insurance agency that Wagner’s insurance company has accepted responsibility for the fire.
The county commissioners last week interviewed five applicants during an executive session meeting at the request of director Nikki Lowry. She works closely with all of the applicants and wanted to avoid the appearance of favoritism.
