Medic reports department to TV news station
He provided internal documents showing the county does not have enough medics, saying he's worried about the people he serves
OXFORD, N.C. — Mike D'Haene has spent 33 years working in emergency medical services, first in the Navy, and now as a North Carolina paramedic. He says he contacted the I-Team because he's worried about the people in Granville County he serves.
"It's not a good situation. I think the taxpayers need to be pretty upset about how their money is being spent," he offered.
D'Haene is a captain at Granville County EMS. He gave us internal documents showing us the county does not have enough paramedics to keep all EMS stations open around the clock. The documents reveal that last year EMS Station 6 in Wilton was shut down 22 full days and 52 half days. Station 7 in Oxford was shut down 75 days.
