 EMS Employee


Work Schedule

Yadkin County EMS has several unique work schedules to choose from: 

Modified 24/48 shifts (employees work only 2 shifts per week)

This schedule has you working only 48 hours/week and allows you to enjoy 5 days off every three-four weeks. This requires no "payback" shifts. We offer two different start-times: 7 am and 8 am.

Float Schedule (employees work only 2 shifts per week)

This schedule is used to supplement the modified 24/48 hour schedule. Employees on the Float Schedule work every Tuesday and Friday for 3-4 months then rotate to every Tuesday and Saturday for the next 3-4 months. 

Pay Range:

At this time, Yadkin County offers full-time employment to credentialed Paramedics only. EMT's and Advanced EMT's are employed in our system in part-time positions. 

Below are the pay ranges for our full-time field staff: 

  • Paramedic: $37,132 - $55,697
  • Crew Chief: $38,988 - $58,482
  • Field Training Officer: $40,938 - $61,406
  • Community Paramedic: $40,938 - $61,406

  • AEMT: $14.69 - $22.03 / hr
  • Paramedic: $17.00 - $25.50 / hr

Pay for full-time and part-time is based on years of experience, education, and other qualifying certificate courses. For full-time employees, the pay range shown does not reflect the additional pay for built-in overtime or holiday hours. For example, a new Paramedic with no experience, no additional degrees, and no additional credentials would earn up to $41,535.47 if the full 2496 hours in a year are worked.
