Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Schueler gave a report to the Board of Health on Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training that is currently happening in Kaycee.

He explained that the EMTs are all volunteers and they donate their time during training and also once they are certified.

Dr. Schueler also said he recently read a report, a “Health Assessment Per County” that looked at accessibility to healthcare, costs, crime statistics and a number of other factors and ranked each county in the state.

Johnson County ranked seventh out of 23 counties in Wyoming, and Schueler said many of the factors involved are economic in nature. Because of the county's small population it doesn't take many factors to skew the data, he said.

Overall, he is pleased with the ranking and does not see any glaring healthcare deficits in the county.
