Director - Chad Pore


Chad Pore became Director of Butler County EMS in May 2014. Prior to his role at BCEMS he was the Director for Kiowa County EMS in Greensburg, KS. During his time at KCEMS Chad spearheaded many changes which ultimately led the agency to being named the 2013 IMPACT Volunteer Service of the Year at the EMS World Expo.
As Director, Chad is responsible for the oversight of all aspects related to Butler County EMS. The agency has undergone some restructuring to ensure there is an equal emphasis on both the operations and clinical needs of the department. Since his arrival the agency has witnessed Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) rates significantly increase. Equally important to Chad is the commitment to safety within the organization.

Chad also serves as the Vice-Chair of the Kansas Board of EMS, is a member of the Kansas Region III EMS Board of Directors, and is the State Coordinator for all National Association of EMTs (NAEMT) courses.
