Vt. to Create Paramedic Training Program

Times Argus - 10:16 am Mon May 24th, 2010

Vermont officials hope a grant to train and equip paramedics - and changes to a state law announced Friday - will draw more emergency medical workers to ambulance crews.

First responders in Colchester, Essex and South Burlington have been awarded a $600,000 grant, $500,000 of it from Federal Emergency Management Agency and $70,000 from the state Legislature, to provide training and equipment so that each squad has 24-hour paramedic coverage.

The grant will also help to set up a statewide training program in collaboration with Vermont Technical College and the University of Vermont's Initiative for Rural Emergency Medical Service.
