CONCORD – The Cabarrus County Emergency Medical Services paramedic team of captains Justin Brines and Will Cannon will represent the region in the N.C. State Paramedic Competition in Greensboro in October.

Brines, a specialty services supervisor, has 18 years of service with EMS and Cannon, a shift supervisor, has 11 years of EMS experience. Both are nationally registered paramedics.
