Pennington Named Assistant Chief of PCAD

A longtime employee of the Pettis County Ambulance District has been named the new Assistant Chief of the organization.

A press release from PCAD, says that during the Board of Director’s meeting on Tuesday (Aug 22), Roy Pennington was appointed new Assistant Chief.

Pennington has worked in emergency medical services since 1999, and according to the press release, previously worked for APSI when it was Pettis County’s only ambulance service. Pennington was then hired by PCAD, when the district took over. He has previously served as a paramedic and shift supervisor with PCAD.

Pennington said he is ‘looking forward to continuing to serve the residents of Pettis County and moving the district forward in a positive direction.’

During the board meeting, several bids were also discussed. Some of the bids included two new ambulances from American Response Vehicle, of Columbia, for an approximate total of $582,000 and a bid for $17,000 worth of new gym equipment for Station No. 2 and the Windsor station. The PCAD Board tabled both bids for further discussion and no action was taken.

The press release also noted that PCAD Chief, Eric Dirck, gave an update on the district’s services during the 2017 Missouri State Fair. The MSF Volunteer Fire Department had 216 patients use the first aid tent and another 146 ambulance calls on the fairgrounds.
