Cherokee County Ambulance is seeking Paramedics, AEMT’s. EMT’s, and EMR’s to join our staff. In 2021 we became the only ambulance service providing Emergency Medical Services for Cherokee County Kansas covering approximately 591 square miles of mostly rural area and serving a population of 20,000. We are a private not for profit organization and not affiliated with the County of Cherokee.


We have three stations located in Columbus, Galena, and Baxter Springs to cover our county. We average 12 calls per day in our county or roughly 4 calls a day per station, depending on which station you are working out of you may see transport times from 15 minutes to an hour. We operate under an aggressive protocol that includes, but not limited to, RSI , TXA , Antibiotic usage, etc. We work a varied schedule with some employees working a rotation (IE 24 on/48 off) and others that work set days in a week, so they work the same days every week. We try to accommodate what shift schedule works best for each employee but still maintain the best coverage for our county. We do not use mandatory holdovers/overtime, you may be asked if you want to cover a shift or if you can cover part of a shift until we can find coverage if someone calls out, but you are not required to. We use an online shift scheduling software that you can access anywhere you have internet access. You can pick up open shifts at any time if you wish to work extra days and we currently do not regulate overtime amounts. Daily job duties include truck checks and cleaning the stations, once those are done you are free to do whatever until a call comes in. You are also free to move around the towns to get food, shop, attend events, etc. if you are in an ambulance with your partner and are ready to respond to a call.
