“This week is Emergency Medical Services Week. As Director of Campbellsville/Taylor County EMS, I would like to recognize our EMT’s and Paramedics for their outstanding work. In the past 12 months our crews have been on over 5,000 runs in Taylor County, including 760 long distance transfers of patients from Taylor Regional Hospital. The crews are constantly increasing their training above our requirements and 95 percent of our Paramedics have completed an 80 hour Critical Care Paramedic Certification. We strive to keep our equipment and medic units at top of the line. I would also like to recognize the City Council and Mayor, Fiscal Court and Judge, Taylor Regional Hospital Air Evac and Dr. Bentley, Medical Director, for their support. Our employees are not inspired by their compensation, but a desire to help people in need.”
- Gary Magers, CTCEMS Director
