Division of EMS Graduates 15 EMTs and Paramedics

Mayor Frank G. Jackson administered the oath of office at the City of Cleveland’s Public Safety Division of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) graduation ceremony for the EMS Cadet Class #2015-02 in City Council Chambers. Director of Public Safety Michael McGrath and Acting EMS Commissioner Nicole Carlton gave congratulatory remarks to the Division’s newest members.

Fifteen Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and Paramedics from the EMS Training Academy were sworn-in and pledged to provide advanced pre-hospital medical care and transportation to persons of illness or injury, and to treat patients with dignity and respect.

Following their release to full independent duty, the EMTs and Paramedics will provide staffing to cover those vacancies created by attrition.  This will maintain the number of ambulances available to handle medical emergencies at 18; providing exemplary pre-hospital care in a professional and timely manner to the citizens and visitors of Cleveland.
