NH Begins Certification Investigation

In the wake of a scandal involving falsified certification for 211 EMTs in Massachusetts, some of those same EMTs who work in New Hampshire could be facing penalties in the Granite State.

New Hampshire officials are now conducting their own investigation, according to the Eagle-Tribune.

A 911 dispatcher for Billerica police, two Townsend ambulance employees and 36 Trinity EMS employees are among emergency medical technicians who will have their licenses suspended by the state for obtaining falsified certifications.

Trinity Ambulance services communities in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

The scandal stems from an investigation that revealed that a Lexington firefighter, Mark Culleton of Billerica, who trained other EMTs , had falsified hundreds of records to give EMTs certifications even though they had not completed required courses and refresher courses.

Culleton ran a state-certified EMT training company, Life Saving Maneuvers of Billerica, but has already surrendered his certifications to ever do such work again, according to a Department of Public Health report.
