The position of Assistant Chief of Management Services is responsible for logistics for the Wake County Department of EMS.

This position plans and forecasts financial and inventory needs, and ensures inventory optimization, order lifecycle management, warehousing and distribution. This includes fleet, supplies, uniforms, contracts, preventative maintenance and whatever else is necessary to keep Wake County EMS units on the road and fully stocked.

Logistics is based out of a 24,000 square-foot warehouse space that EMS shares with Emergency Management. This space allows Wake County to purchase in bulk and store needed equipment and supplies.

Asst. Chief Marc Ferguson joined with Wake County EMS in the spring of 2018. He began his EMS career in the Detroit, Michigan, area before moving to Raleigh in 2012. Marc holds a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Communications from Oakland University and a Master’s of Health Sciences in Emergency Medical Care Management. He served Durham County EMS as a paramedic, FTO and then Captain in administration overseeing fleet, logistics and purchasing for the department.

Three Logistics Officers and one Warehouse Coordinator assist with day-to-day functions, which allows for seven-days-a-week support. When they are not delivering supplies to stations, they are assisting Operations by deploying specialty assets or responding with COMM-1 or EVAC-1.
