The director of Berkeley County EMS resigned yesterday. This comes a week or two after a shift supervisor left her job there as well.
We talked with a number of people to try to find out why, but nobody wants to talk about it.
Steve Cotter turned in his resignation on Thursday. We left a message on Cotter’s cell phone, but he has not returned our call.
We were able to talk to a former shift supervisor, Barbara Ann McMurry. She left her job in the last couple of weeks. She would only say that she did not want to talk on camera, and she would not talk about Berkeley County EMS.
We also stopped by the Berkeley County office building to talk to Supervisor Bill Peagler. His spokesman Michael Mulé released a statement saying, “Berkeley County has not and will not comment on confidential personnel matters, particularly those of former employees.”
Cotter was hired by Supervisor Dan Davis after the previous director, Bob Mixter, left the job after authorizing use of a county EMS bus to transport guests at a wedding.
If we can confirm any more information about why there have been recent changes at Berkeley County EMS, we will pass that information on to you.
