Bradley Williams Hired As New Ambulance Director

The Scotland County Ambulance Service went a long way from home to find a new director. Bradley Williams relocated to Memphis from his Panama City, FL, home bringing with him more than 15 years of emergency medical experience.

Williams is trading in the tropical weather just in time for a good old Missouri winter, but it wont be his first. Bradley was born in Kirksville and grew up in Schuyler County so he has ties to the region.

I wanted to be an EMS manager and the opportunity arose here, in a region Im familiar with, so it seemed like a perfect opportunity, Williams said. I have a lot of family in this area so it worked out well.

The U.S. Air Force gave Williams his start in emergency medicine. He spent 10 years in the service serving as a flight medic in Hampton, VA.

Since leaving the Air Force Williams has worked as a paramedic and said he is looking forward to his first administrative position.

My goal is to run a performance system, to be efficient and provide top notch service, Williams said. I would like for our ambulance service to be the premiere service in the region one that other services will look to as a model to pattern themselves after.

Williams took charge of the Scotland County Ambulance Service on September 15. He serves as the operational manager for the three-ambulance fleet, preparing budgets, protocol and procedures while also managing the staff of 11 full and part time employees. He also works in the field, making ambulance runs as a paramedic.

Thats the part I really enjoy, Williams said. I want to be the director but I didnt want to give up the paramedic duties where I still can get out on the ambulance to help people.

While he will continue to serve as a paramedic, Williams noted that he has several plans on the administrative end as well. One of the largest of these duties will be grant writing. The new director stated that the ambulance service is already being considered for a grant written prior to his hiring but added that he plans to continue to aggressively pursue added funding for the district.

Since 9-11 additional funding has been made available for emergency services, Williams said. Its all about knowing what is out there and how to get your hands on it. Anyone can apply for the grants. My job is to be creative and innovative as I focus on trying to secure some of this funding for our local ambulance service.
