Haliburton County EMS director and paramedic chief Craig Jones is no longer with the municipality.

County chief administrative officer Mike Rutter told the paper Jones’s last day with the county was Jan. 9 and would not comment on the nature of Jones’s departure.

“I really can’t comment on HR issues” Rutter said.

Rutter was asked whether Jones had a new position somewhere else.

“I don’t know” he said.

The county will likely begin a recruitment process for a replacement within the next week Rutter said a process that will likely take two to three months to complete.

In the meantime paramedic deputy-chief Jim Young is taking on most of the chief’s role. Rutter said a number of staff members are helping chip in.

Jones was hired in early 2014 replacing longtime EMS director Pat Kennedy.
