Sturgis EMS Wants In On Class B Retirement

(Sturgis, SD) — Sturgis EMS workers want to be covered by the state’s Class B retirement. The special class covers professionals in law enforcement, firefighters, and the judiciary but doesn’t recognize EMS workers. Sturgis Ambulance Director Shawn Fischer says EMS professionals are just as important as those already recognized in Class B. EMS workers receive two-percent less in retirement and must work ten to 15 years longer than other first responders.
