Terry Vance works for the Scott County Emergency Medical Services Department as a First Responder. It had always been his goal to work in Emergency Medical, but there were not very many resources in West Virginia where Vance previously resided. For that reason, Vance and his wife moved to Kentucky in 2001 where he attended EKU to major in Emergency Medical Care. While in school, Vance worked at the University of Kentucky and completed his Emergency Medical Training basic at EKU. He also completed several hours of ride along and hospital experience. He has worked for Scott County since 2007 after graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2006. As an EMS First Responder, Vance provides complete patient prehospital care. This involves cardiac care, assessing trauma, transporting patients to hospitals, and so much more!

Vance says that his favorite part of the job is “Knowing at the end of the day I made a difference in someone’s life.” Because the guidelines of medical care are always changing, he is always looking for new ways to improve in his career and stay up to date on how he can better serve our citizens. In 2020, Vance is looking forward to finishing his house that is being built for his family. He also will be striving to continue making a difference in the lives of Scott County citizens.
