Burrton Fire District Looking To Hire EMS Director

Posted 3/2/2017

BURRTON—The Burrton Consolidated Fire District #5 Board  had its monthly meeting on Monday, Feb. 27. With EMS Director Rusty Walter announcing his intent to retire, and Fire Chief Jon Roberts injured, the District has to find a way to keep the department going. Duties have been divided up amongst volunteer members and the District has decided to try to hire a new Assistant EMS Director.

Assistant Fire Chief Jim Redinger said he had talked to a few people in the community who might be interested in the position. “We need a job description so I can give them some more information,” Redinger said.

Chairman of the Fire Board Troy Mueller added they needed to determine what training or requirements they wanted for that position and how many hours they would be expected to work. Clark Kirk proposed that a job description be written and presented at the April meeting. “We have to have a person in that position so we can sign for our license,” Kirk added.
