ProMed Ambulance is proud to announce that we've been selected to establish a full-paid, full time ambulance service for Calhoun County, Arkansas beginning March 1, 2017. The area has been well served by its local volunteer ambulance service for many years, but county officials desire a more robust department and have partnered with ProMed to expand coverage and bring jobs to the area.
In transition, the service will continue to provide Basic Life Support (BLS) response from its station to be located in the City of Hampton. Operations will include one 24-hour staffed unit with backup/backfill and paramedic intercept services provided by ProMed's neighboring Union County operations as well as other adjoining counties. The service will employ six full time EMT's and a complement of additional part time EMTs. Full time positions will include a robust benefits package, competitive salaries, and advancement opportunties within the company. Future plans include expanding services to include an advanced level response as service utilization increases.
Currently licensed EMTs are encouraged to apply for the new full time positions. Individuals considering a career as an EMS professional but who are not yet trained should apply for ProMed's EMT Academy. This special course offering will include candidates who will be hired as full time employees and paid to take the initial training course. Upon completion and passing the licensure exam, the employees will continue employment, transitioning to the full time ambulance staffing schedule.
ProMed will be conducting a Community Meet & Greet meeting soon. Details will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page (ProMed Ambulance). If you are interested in employment -- full or part time -- please attend and learn more about how you can be a part of making the service a success for Calhoun County.
