Promotions Announced

At the Cary Area EMS annual meeting in July 2018 a number of promotions were announced. We are proud of staff and their accomplishments with the agency and in Wake County.

Chasidy Kearns was promoted from Lieutenant to Division Chief. She is responsible for training and continuing education. Chasidy has been with Cary Area EMS for 18 years getting her start as a volunteer.

Quincy Harris, a paramedic with Cary Area EMS for 9 years, was promoted to Lieutenant and will coordinate our community outreach efforts.

Paramedics that recently passed the Field Training Officer (FTO) process include Kaylor Meade, Christian Bennett, and Mike Arnold. These staff members mentor and train newly hired paramedics in the field training education program (FTEP).

There is always a need to have relief supervisors for our District Chief given a busy system. Four paramedics were recently promoted to serve in this capacity.
