Paramedic for Mitta Valley
Digest
The State Government has announced funding for the provision of a full-time paramedic to work with Ambulance Community officers (ACOs) at Mitta and three other nearby Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs).

The Mitta Ambulance has been lobbying for ten years to get a full-time officer based at Mitta with a model that would involve other duties such as district nursing and training.

Few details are available as to what involvement the appointee will have but it is expected that the paramedic will attend local cases in a support role to local ACOs and attend as the primary responding officer when available.

The Mitta ACOs are casual employees of Ambulance Victoria but do not receive any remuneration for being on 24-hour call.  Extensive training is provided and the team is always looking for new recruits.

The new paramedic is expected to be appointed early in 2017 and will be a valuable asset to emergency health care in the Valley, especially during holiday periods and when special events involving large crowds are held.


Robyn Kelly and Lew McDonald receive awards from Ambulance Victoria at a recent ceremony at Wangaratta.
Robyn Kelly's award was for 20-years' service and Lew McDonald for 15 years.  Both received medals for safe driving.
