LANCASTER, WI (Ben Caxton) — Lancaster has called a “Do-Over” in their search for a new EMS director. After receiving four applicants for the job and interviewing all four candidates, the Lancaster Police and Fire Commission has decided to again open the position for new applications. According to Lancaster Fire Chief Steve Braun, the commission has changed the description for the position. The previous qualifications called for Advanced Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic Certification, with Paramedic Certification preferred. Braun says the commission has decided to change the minimum requirement for applicants to be for EMT-Basic Certification with Paramedic preferred. Braun said the decision by the commission to re-post the job isn’t frustrating, because the commission and the ambulance service is in agreement that they’re hoping to hire someone who will be a good fit for the community and the organization. At least six years experience in emergency medical operations is still required, and the person hired would be required to live within 15-miles of the City of Lancaster within six-months of being hired. Starting salary range will stay the same at between $50,000 and $55,000 per year.
