Austin, Travis EMS fighting to end staff shortage

Austin/Travis County EMS is battling a staffing shortage in their department.

Officials said they have a cadet class that will help fill vacancies, but the ATCEMS Employee Association said it's a deeper problem.

It has been a record setting year for Austin/Travis County EMS in a couple of ways. ATCEMS management said they have a record sized cadet class underway right now, but the Employee Association president said there is also a record amount of resignations for this time of year.
