NRHA applauds senators' efforts to increase veteran employment

NRHA recently sent a letter to Sens. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) thanking them for introducing the Veterans to Paramedics Transition Act and their leadership in this critical area. The bill will streamline civilian paramedic training for veterans who gained emergency medical experience as a result of their military service, making it easier to secure jobs as paramedics. Far too many rural communities have critical shortages of trained emergency personnel. At the same time, these communities are home to thousands of men and women who received emergency medical training while serving in the military. Yet, when they return, this military training and experience does not count toward training and certification as civilian paramedics. This legislation goes far in accelerating and streamlining the transition to civilian employment for returning veterans, allowing them to continue to serve their communities in a new and needed capacity.
