Bottineau Ambulance

Posted: Updated:

An all volunteer ambulance service in Bottineau recently got a big upgrade -- a change from that "all-volunteer" status.

The squad hired two full-time paramedics for the first time ever last month and they are now on the job.

Jason Boan is one of the newly hired medical professionals now responding to calls in the region.

He says he's been involved in the emergency response industry since high school...and stepping into a region with an increasing amount of calls is exciting.

Working with volunteers is a bit different however...and he's learning how to work with them...and teach them too.

(Jason Boan - Newly Hired Paramedic) "We have to learn to adjust to the way they do things. It is a little more laid back than a big city service. We have to learn to do things their way and bring them up to speed on some of the things we have done in the past."

Tonight, the Bottineau Ambulance Squad is hosting an open house to welcome the two new paramedics who have been hired.

It started at 5 and runs until 7 at the Ambulance headquarters right next to St. Andrew's Health Center.
