By WestKyStar Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - The City of Mayfield is very pleased to highlight some employees who have taken their training to a new level in order to provide citizens of Mayfield with more focused service in their respective departments.
The Mayfield Fire Department now has three new paramedics. Firefighter/EMTs Michael Rowland, Jeremy Creason and Chris Sexton have all completed the training and testing required for their Kentucky Certification as paramedics. Rowland has worked for the City of Mayfield since 2010. Sexton was employed by the City in 2006, and Creason has been employed since 2008.
The training for paramedics is intense and extensive, requiring over eighteen months to complete, plus testing by the state of Kentucky.
“With several of our paramedics reaching retirement age, it is wonderful to see some of our younger men take on the added responsibility of becoming paramedics for the City of Mayfield,” said Mayor Teresa Cantrell. “We hope to have several more within the next year.”
The Mayfield Police Department has three officers who have recently completed three weeks of Sergeant school at the Police Academy in Richmond, KY. Those officers include Chris Watkins, Brandon Collins, and David Clark.
The City of Mayfield congratulates all of these employees for their additional training, bringing a better quality of service to the citizens of Mayfield.
