Tiffin, Ohio — The Seneca County Board of Commissioners has launched its search for an Emergency Medical Services Director.

Qualified applicants should have a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration, Emergency Management, Managerial Studies or a related field. They also must have at least three years of administrative/managerial experience. A qualified applicant must be a Certified Paramedic in the State of Ohio with training and experience in trauma/emergency care and public safety or a BSN in the state.

The new EMS Director will serve an important role as they help to guide Seneca County EMS through a transitional period.

Historically, Seneca County EMS has been a system that has relied almost entirely on volunteer EMTs and paramedics. With the recent passage of a 2.5-mill levy via the Seneca County Joint Ambulance District, the county is partnering with the 11 townships and six villages of that district to hire and utilize more paid personnel.

Volunteers will continue to be an important part of the system, but with fewer than ever available, the new director will work closely in building and improving upon the current system and leading all personnel.

Essential functions of this position include day-to-day administrative leadership, administration of fiscal operations and departmental budgets and managing and directing employees in providing emergency medical services, among other duties.

Those interested in applying for this position should send their county application and resume to Jaime Wolfe, Seneca County Administrator, at [email protected].
