PORTLAND, Maine — The group that oversees rescue training throughout southern Maine has shed its staff and reorganized as it tries to win back the state's confidence.

Southern Maine EMS failed to win renewal of its state contract at the end of June, when the Maine Emergency Medical Services board identified shortcomings in training oversight. It cited instructors whose certification was not current and a failure to cover required topics in a course, said Jay Bradshaw, director of Maine Emergency Medical Services, part of the state Department of Public Safety.
