The Enterprise Agreement implementation group is reponsible for developing  the terms for a trial in one regional area that will support paramedics who are working Spare. This trial will allow paramedics rostered to additional lines at their home branch to nominate their preparedness to work at single officer locations. The scope of the trial will consider relevant matters as agreed by the parties. The trial will also explore opportunities to improve paramedic familiarisation with the Ambulance Community Officer model and single officer response.
