Alamance County is looking for motivated paramedics!  Alamance County EMS utilizes progressive protocols and is nestled between Moses Cone and the UNC/Duke University Healthcare Systems.  This grants the opportunity to triage and transport patients to their definitive location for care.  We currently utilize ESO for our documentation with both CAD and Physio interfaces.  We also have brand new LP-15's on each truck and one Lucas 2 device on our supervisor vehicle with three more on the way.  Within six months, we anticipate being fully outfitted with Stryker Power load stretchers and systems on all of our ambulances.  Our paramedics work a 24/72 schedule which offers a great work/life balance.  If you would like to be part of a progressive system that is continuing to grow and evolve, then Alamance County is the place for you!
