Door County has avoided major EMT shortage

A statewide shortage of rural emergency health workers has so far spared Door County.  Aaron LeClair, Director of Door County Emergency Services, says the county prepared in the 1970s and 1980s and made EMT’s, EMS’s, and paramedics county employees. LeClair added that it has been tough to keep enough part-time staff.
 

 

 
The Wisconsin Department of Public Health says there are about 17,000 EMT’s working in Wisconsin and 37% of those are volunteers. About 40% of EMT’s in Wisconsin are working more than 24-hour shifts.
