Medics, drivers needed

Phoenix Emergency Management Inc. is in need of qualified personnel to man emergency vehicles.

“We are urgently looking for medics and drivers for this fire season,” said David Matteucci.

“The fire centres are still asking for medic teams to support the wildfire fire suppression crews. Phoenix has the medic trucks available, but a lack of people to fill them.”

Matteucci said there is a need for both medics and drivers that are available for two-week shifts - possibly one, but not preferable - to work in the Cache Creek and Williams Lake areas.

Travel costs are provided.

“These will be 12 hour shifts, paid by the hour and accommodations, meals provided by the fire camps,” said Matteucci.
Drivers must have their class 4 (2 or 1) licence and S-100, Basic Fire Suppression course.
Medics must have OFA3 and S-100, Basic Fire Suppression course.

“Phoenix can help you get the S-100, quickly, if you do not have it,” said Matteucci.
