BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. — As of Nov. 1, new employees signing on to work for Beaufort County EMS, the sheriff’s office or the detention center will get a $7,500 signing bonus, WTOC reported.
”We have had voids as far as EMTs and paramedics go, but we have seen an increase in people seeking employment, but we still have some vacancies so hopefully this sign-on bonus will be an initiative to have more people work for our department,” said Virginia Marshall, the public information officer for Beaufort County EMS.
