Ambulance company gives free EMT classes

Roseville staff sees growing demand for emergency workers.

Superior Ambulance in Roseville is offering free training to become an emergency medical technician to people who meet the requirements and pass a pre-employment interview.

Sandra Ratliff, of the human resources department at Superior, said it's not an entirely altruistic offer.

"There's an expectancy of growth (in the need for EMTs and paramedics) over the next 10 years of 27 percent," Ratliff said, and there's already a shortage. By helping to train EMTs, Superior hopes that "We can recruit right from our classes."
