    Pre-Hire Physical (I failed)

    All 3 were basically the same. Pull out and replace gurney without battery, pick up and walk around with some weights (can't remember how much, but light. 30lbs maybe), go up and down some stairs with weights. Walk backwards... That's about it. Maybe I had to lift something over my head...

    Pre-Hire Physical (I failed)

    That's crazy. What is it some special forces EMS? I've done physical tests for at least 3 different companies and none came close to that!

    Whats cooking in the international contract world 2019?

    So I'm finally getting close enough with experience (~3 years P) to apply for some these jobs. Would really like to get my foot in the door. How does one go about applying? Thanks in advance for any info.

    Las Vegas - somewhat employment related...

    Thank you Sandpit. You have significantly reduced my anxiety level concerning this entire process :) Next I want to pick your brain about remote/international work. But we can do that later and maybe in person, and perhaps over a beer.

    Las Vegas - somewhat employment related...

    Thanks for the location tips. Tell me more about this A-EMT thing... I specifically asked about it during my interview (after reading about it here in other threads) and the supervisor, rather curtly, told me they don't do that. They only hire paramedics as paramedics. So if that's no the case...

    Las Vegas - somewhat employment related...

    Thanks for the reply! I have been thoroughly studying the protocols, but expect to get a better feel for hospital location and capabilities once I get down there and start looking around. I like the way the protocols are laid out in flow charts. Very different than here, especially with the...

    Las Vegas - somewhat employment related...

    Hi all, I was recently hired by a private ambulance service in Las Vegas with a start date in Dec. I'll be moving down mid November in order to get to know the city a little bit and jump through all the hoops necessary to get my NV license (paramedic). I was wondering if anyone can give me some...

    Las Vegas employment

    Good luck Ethan! I was invited to test in Sept, but it's too short notice (applied yesterday). I'll be testing in Oct. Let me know if you learn anything worth passing on about the test and the general layout of things there (e.g. expectations, things that surprised you, etc.)

    Las Vegas EMS Updates?

    Thanks for your reply. Looks like Vegas it is... I read up on a bunch of posts from '13 - '14 about AMR and MW there. Was just wondering if anything changed in the last couple of years. Oh, RSI was just an example I used because I know it varies so much throughout the country. Speaking of which...
