ESD 11 aims to hire 150 employees across 12 positions, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians, supervisors and 911 telecommunicators, according to April Arias, public relations manager for Androvett. The district launched its hiring effort in late April and held a virtual job fair April 29-30 to attract candidates.
At a Feb. 25 meeting, ESD No. 11 Commissioner Kevin Brost said the district planned to budget “about $29 million to put 28 ambulances on the street," Community Impact Newspaper previously reported. The district's ambulances will begin servicing residents Sept. 4 after ESD No. 11's contract with Cypress Creek Emergency Medical Services expires, according to the April 29 Androvett release.
CCEMS is a nonprofit currently providing ambulance services to parts of the Spring, Cypress, Tomball, Humble and The Woodlands areas. No details of what CCEMS will do when its contract expires have been released.
Prior to opening the application period, commissioners hired Doug Hooten as the executive director and Dr. Casey Patrick as the medical director of the new EMS. Additionally, construction continues on ESD No. 11's new facility, located at 18334 Stuebner Airline Road, Spring.
