When state officials doubled the fee to be certified as an emergency medical technician this spring, it meant William Schulz and his fiancee, Alyssa Gagne, had to find an additional $150 in their household budget. Schulz, a full-time firefighter and EMT, and Gagne, a call EMT, work for the Town of Millis.
[Louise Goyette] said the state does not expect the fee increases to prompt an exodus of EMTs from local departments. After a rate boost two years ago, she said, "We actually retained a higher percentage of EMTs that year, which was interesting."
