Auburn bumps starting salaries for EMT, paramedics in new ambulance service launching this fall

The City of Auburn is making some adjustments to the wages and hours of those who will be working on its self-run ambulance service.

City officials say the service is on-track to launch in the fall, which was approved in the spring. The launch of the service ends the long-time service provided by TLC Emergency Medical Services.


First up will be hiring a director, according to city officials, who told The Citizen that 17 people applied for that role. At this point, they hope to have the candidates interviewed in the coming weeks.

EMT and paramedic roles were originally listed as having starting salaries of $14 and $20 per hour respectively. However, the two were bumped to $16-$20 and $22-$29 respectively after one day online.

City officials told The Citizen that it was re-evaluated due to other costs with launching the service being less than what was forecasted.
