A private ambulance company is planning a hiring blitz and opening a new location in Dayton. Buckeye Ambulance is moving from Centerville to Dayton, which will mean three times more space and major hiring in the near future, according to a press release from the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce. … Buckeye Ambulance started in 2012 with the purchase of two ambulances and has since grown to nearly 50 vehicles, including a mix of ambulance, wheelchair vans and supporting command vehicles. It specializes in inner hospital transports and getting clients to and from doctor office visits and specialty appointments. Along with the new facility, Buckeye plans to hire 100 to 150 people to add to its current local workforce of 100. Buckeye will hold onsite interviews for EMT’s, advanced paramedics and ambulette drivers. …
