Boarding a patient

Miami County EMS is a great place to work! We employ paramedics and EMTs that are committed to providing exceptional patient care. We work with progressive treatment protocols and state-of-the-art equipment that allows the paramedic or EMT to “take good care of sick people” and to apply critical thinking skills. There is a good relationship between staff and management and there is great support from our Medical Director and the County for the success of the operation and the mission of the organization. The atmosphere at the stations is relaxed and everyone works together to make it a positive and supportive work environment. Management is committed to helping every employee reach their full potential and advance their careers through educational opportunities and tuition reimbursement programs offered through the County. The department offers challenging and rewarding training programs and there are many opportunities for continuing education and career advancement. We are patient advocates and make every effort to “do the right thing for the right reason.” 


The paramedics and EMTs at Miami County EMS currently work the 48/96 schedule. That means they work a 48 hour shift followed by 96 hours or 4 days off. This was an idea brought to management by staff as a way for the employees to have more time at home and to save money with less travel time. The employees enjoy more weekends off with an opportunity to spend more time with family, especially with four days off between their scheduled work days. As a 48 hour shift can be long, crews are allowed to rest as needed so they are alert and prepared for any emergency. Technicians are allowed to go to local area restaurants to eat or they may bring their own food and prepare meals at the station. There are some amazing chefs on staff who like to practice their culinary skills at the department and many great meals have been prepared and shared with the crews. Both stations are equipped with full service kitchens, wireless internet access, as well as satellite television. (For more information on the 48/96 shift schedule, visit the website at


All newly hired Miami County employees are required to complete an EMS academy. The academy is typically five days long and is conducted Monday through Friday from 0800 - 1700 hours. During the Academy, the new employee is introduced to all of the Miami County EMS  operating procedures and protocols and the equipment we carry.  The academy is conducted in a classroom setting with presentations and practical skills labs by the department’s Field Training Officers and members of the Administrative Team. 


After completion of the Academy, each new employee will complete a field orientation under the direct supervision of a Lieutenant or a Field Training Officer. The amount of time the new employee spends in orientation is dependent on how comfortable the employee is with the department policies and procedures. The Field Training Officer will provide guidance and monitor performance and complete compliance monitoring paperwork to insure each new employee has an understanding of our expectations and the established standard of care. Once the academy and orientation is completed, the employee is released to independent duty.
