Job Description

The Director of Ambulance Operations, also referred to as the EMS Director

will emphasize close coordination, communications and collaboration with the

DoS officials in Iraq, the MSSI DSH, small DSHs, HUs, CONUS support and

other relevant locations to ensure that responsive and reliable services are

delivered at all times.

The EMS Director will manage day-to-day operations, logistic and

administrative functions to optimize overall service delivery.  The EMS

director reports to the MSSI Program Manager and is responsible for

technical oversight over all assigned EMTs (Basic, Advanced or Paramedic)

staff.  The EMS Director may also provide clinical services as an EMT-P and

is clinically supervised by the site lead provider or other provider that is

supervising clinical care on site.

The EMS Director monitors the skills, training and performance of all medics

using the following scope of work:

The EMT-P will be assigned to treat patients in one of three settings: (1)

Field Health Unit, (2) Small medical/trauma hospitals, (3) Large

medical/trauma hospital and assists in examination and treatment of patients

under the direction of a physician or physician extender.

The EMT-P interviews patients, measures vital signs (i.e., pulse rate,

temperature, blood pressure, weight, and height), and records the

information on patients’ charts. EMT may be required to draw and collect

blood samples from patients and prepare specimens for laboratory analysis.

The Supervisor will be expected to supervise other EMT’s, schedule, maintain

shelf stock and ensure the presentation of an orderly and safe clinic

environment

The EMT-P will perform emergency skills, such as managing respiratory,

will deal with bleeding, fractures, airway obstruction, cardiac arrest, and

emergency childbirth. EMT-P will use and maintain common emergency

equipment, such as backboards, suction devices, splints, oxygen delivery

systems, and stretchers.

equipment.
