Peterborough County and Kawartha Lakes, ON – Today, Warden Jones, Peterborough County and Mayor Letham, Kawartha Lakes, are pleased to share that they have extended the contract for Randy Mellow’s role as Chief of Paramedics for both services for an additional two years.

It has been a year since Chief Mellow stepped into the dual leadership role for both Services.  “I am very pleased with the decision to continue the shared services agreement that will see continued partnership and collaboration between the Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough Paramedic Services,” said Chief Randy Mellow. “At this time of unprecedented growth and evolution of paramedicine, the visionary leadership of our municipalities as demonstrated in this agreement is key to responding to the needs of our communities in an efficient and proactive way. I am excited to continue to play a role in that vision.”

This Agreement was an early example of the Provincial mandate to find efficiencies and modernization to assist in evolving paramedicine in Ontario. It has been an effective pilot of a collaboration between the two Paramedic Services.
