Rutherford County EMS Moves to 24/72 Shifts for Employees to Promote Better Work-Life Balance.

EMS is not a regular 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.. Our 24 hours on and 72 hours off shifts allows our personnel to effectively balance their work/life responsibilities. At RCEMS, our employees and their families are extremely important and we want to make sure we’re taking care of their wellbeing.

We want to ensure that we are providing them with benefits that positively impact their careers and families respectively.

With EMS departments all across the country experiencing a shortage of personnel and qualified or even interested applicants, RCEMS staff knows the 24/72 shifts, along with the long list of additional benefits, will draw a diverse group of qualified candidates to serve Rutherford County.

In addition to the 24/72 shifts, we provide our personnel with excellent benefits including insurance and retirement, adequate personal time off, and multiple opportunities for advancement. 

The department recently issued a recruitment video in an effort to attract new candidates as well. (view on YouTube)
