Following Governor Whitmer’s State of the State, Angela Madden, executive director of the Michigan Association of Ambulance Services issued the following statement:

“The Michigan Association of Ambulance Services was encouraged to hear Gov. Whitmer express support for increasing skills training in her State of the State speech tonight. The skills gap has made it difficult for us to recruit and train EMS personnel which are essential to saving lives. We appreciate Gov. Whitmer’s commitment to more training and scholarship opportunities so that we can better prepare talent for essential life-saving careers in our industry. We look forward to working with the governor and her administration.”

when one is unemployed or on otherwise limited income it is hard to find free training in order to maintain necessary skills and earn the CEU's required to maintain and renew one's licensure. Many of us serve in volunteer positions and have no "Company" to reimburse us for expenses incurred in trying to maintain our current skills and licensure. If the State could do more to make such opportunities available, it would enable more licensed Emergency Responders to be available to serve. As it is, many EMS positions are low-paid and spending a lot of money to travel, lodge and eat to attend a Conference presents a substantial financial hardship.
