AEMTs and Paramedics to assist communities during the COVID-19

The State of Tennessee is seeking Advanced EMTs and Paramedics to assist our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. AEMTs and Paramedics are needed to support COVID-19 vaccine distribution as well as testing in rural clinics throughout our State. This paid opportunity is targeting eligible EMS staff that would like to participate in operations near their residence during their days off. All individuals seeking contract employment through this initiative shall coordinate with their supervisory staff and obtain acknowledgement for dual employment. This intentional step is being put in place to minimize market impact of moonlighting EMS Personnel helping this program from impacting their normal EMS service.

In order to mobilize qualified medical staff rapidly, we have partnered with Cross Country Healthcare Staffing. Interested persons should click on the link in the attached AEMT and Paramedic Communication document, following the navigation instructions, which will take you to the Cross Country sponsored landing page for pandemic jobs with the State of TN.
