BROOKSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky's emergency services department has been placed on probation until April for allowing an administrator to drive an ambulance on a call.
The Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services placed Bracken County EMS because the department's administrator, Allen Perkins, did not have certification to drive the ambulance.
The Maysville Ledger Independent reported that Bracken County
EMS also paid a $1,500 fine.
Bracken County Judge-Executive Gary Riggs says Perkins has since enrolled in a First Responder class offered at Bracken County EMS, which would qualify him to drive an ambulance.
Riggs says anyone with a valid license used to be able to drive
an ambulance in an emergency, but that's no longer the case.
