As July closed out, our agency director Brandon Remley also closed out his 20 year career. Assistant Director Chris Runyon was promoted to director to take on the lead role for our agency moving forward.
Chris began his Emergency Medical Services Career in March of 1989 when he received his initial NREMT Certification while working in the coal mines. A short time later he was full-time at the local EMS Agency and in 1993 Chris received his Paramedic Certification. Chris has worked in EMS for over 30 years and has also spent several years working in the fire service and 911 dispatching. When he came to Georgetown a few years ago he said, “It felt like home and I knew this is where I wanted to spend the remaining years of my career”. Chris relocated to Georgetown in 2017 where he resides with his wife of 30 years. When asked, Chris said, “There is so much to love about this job but the people I’ve met and the friendships I’ve developed along the way has to be the greatest thing about it”. He counts his family as the best blessing in his life – he has two children and one, brand-new, granddaughter. When interviewed about his new position Chris stated, “I couldn’t be more excited or more honored to serve as the Director for GSCEMS. It has such a rich history and an outstanding legacy; it truly is one of the most prestigious EMS Systems in the State of Kentucky and I only want to do my small part to continue that tradition”.
We’re excited to see what our future holds here!
