County working out medical examiner kinks
Placeholder Image
Offering a new service in the community, that of medical examiner investigator, could be initially troublesome for the county.“Has any of this been discussed with the county’s medical examiner?” Warren County Executive John Pelham asked Warren County EMS director Brian Jennings during Monday’s meeting of the Safety Committee.After receiving a “no” from Jennings, Pelham added, “I just don’t want him to hear we are discussing this without him knowing about it first.”What the county is attempting to do is offer the service of medical examiner investigator, which is an extension of the medical examiner’s office. Four members of the county EMS department received training last month that qualified them as medical examiner investigators.
