McGregor is a 13-year veteran in emergency services, working as a care provider, educator, administrator and community volunteer. He began his service career as a medic in 2001 with Gloucester Fire and Rescue, worked as a unit secretary for the emergency department of Riverside Walter Reed Hospital in Gloucester, emergency technician at Sentara CarePlex Hospital in Hampton, and medic for Central Middlesex Rescue Squad in Urbanna.

From 2005 through 2011 he was assistant director of EMS Programs at Rappahannock Community College in Glenns, served as president of the Chesapeake Bay Center for Health Education and was adjunct professor of EMS for Northern Virginia Community College in Springfield and Rappahannock Community College in Glenns.

In 2011, he became the senior training specialist for the Richmond Department of Fire and Emergency Services in the City of Richmond. McGregor’s areas of expertise include the development and use of innovative methods of instruction.

He was educated at Ohio State University, Rappahannock Community College, Tidewater Community College and Virginia Commonwealth University. He is a member of numerous professional organizations and has been consistently nominated for EMS awards of excellence.

“We got quite a few worthy candidates from the 22 applications received,” said county administrator Frank Pleva. ‚ One of the strengths we found with Terry is his experience in working with the paid side as well as the volunteers.‚Äù

While the primary emphasis of the EMS chief’s job is the rescue squads, McGregor also will have dealings with the fire department, Pleva noted.

“On a daily basis, Terry will coordinate schedules with the two (volunteer) rescue squads.” he said.
