Charlotte rescue squad under investigation

Posted: Updated:

Charlotte Rescue is once again under investigation. This time it is because of security concerns regarding its controlled substances.

The physician overseeing the EMT squad restricted its paramedic response level as a result of his investigation. That means EMTs cannot administer pain meds, medication for cardiac life support or perform airway management and critical care. Those restrictions will last for three months.

Vermont EMS Deputy Director Mike Leyden confirmed the investigation, but says the state is not yet involved.
