Giaccio put the corps’ annual revenue at roughly $120,000 vs. an estimated EMT cost of $160,000. For that reason, he said, village board action was unlikely before the new position had been addressed in a future budget

160K a year for an emt??? Surely that figure is not for just one EMT. For 160K I'll move there and work 24/7 and I'll even be their huckleberry.

I'm thinking that would be for a full time EMT coverage 24/7. Take that amount and do the math and it works out to $18.26 per hour.

Um, more like $9.13/hour. Two providers per shift, two shifts per day (12 hour shifts), 365 days per year. This simple calculation doesn't factor in vacation or benefits cost so keeping things at the 160k mark would mean making less than $9.13/hour.

Not exactly what I would consider well paid, but compensation rates state side don't really compare to what we see in Canada.

But they are asking for only ONE full timer.
