UPDATE: Miller Resigning As SCAT Director, KIWA Learns

Sheldon, Iowa — SCAT Director Kevin Miller will be resigning from the ambulance team’s Director position, as well as his paramedic position later this month.

KIWA talked with Miller Monday morning and asked what went into his decision to leave the ambulance team.

(As above) “I have just had a lot of life changes in the past year-and-a-half, with getting married, starting a family. And I just feel like I needed to take a step back and really focus on some other areas in my life so I can continue helping others in the long run.”

Miller began his association with SCAT as a volunteer in August of 2015. In July of 2016 he became SCAT’s first full-time employee, tackling the new position of Full-Time EMT/Paramedic Coordinator, becoming SCAT Director in April of 2018.

Miller left his full-time SCAT position in June, 2018 to accept a position as Emergency Services Education Coordinator at Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon, while retaining the SCAT Director position. At one point he also served as Director for the Archer Ambulance in the months before that City’s Council disbanded the organization.

Miller says his departure from SCAT is bittersweet and he encouraged people to become involved with the Sheldon Community Ambulance Team.

(As above) “SCAT’s a really great place to be involved with and I would encourage anyone who is looking to get involved in something within the community to look at one of our public safety entities in town. But specifically SCAT has definitely left a mark on my heart and I will definitely carry that with me through my career.

Miller says his resignation will become effective at 6:00 pm on Sunday, January 31st.
