    University of Arizona EMS B.S.

    The only reason I really liked the "in-person" part, is because ultimately I'd like to go to medical school, and almost all of them would throw out an online degree. I just like the idea of already having two years of schooling going towards a bachelors. I've heard good things about UNM and...

    University of Arizona EMS B.S.

    So I've been kind of interested in a degree in EMS, and came across this. It looks legit since it's actually through the medical school, and not an online degree. Wanted to see if any of you guys had heard anything about it. UA EMS Major

    Arizona Certificate of Necessity

    To anyone working in Arizona, how exactly does the certificate of necessity work when there are multiple companies and agencies overlapping one area? Is there a primary agency, and the rest are backup? Or does one fire and one private ambulance show up, and fire only takes high acuity patients...

    Southern California Pay Rates as of 4/17/19

    Just because they're demanding it, doesn't mean they'll get it. Honestly, I'd be surprised if they break $21 for medic. Which, even at that rate, easily makes them the highest paid in the region. I'd love to see them pull ahead after the dust settles, I'm just not getting hyped for union promises.

    Southern California Pay Rates as of 4/17/19

    These are all starting paramedic rates. Some companies count prior experience, even as an EMT (like Hall), others could care less. https://www.amr.net/home/riverside Just go to the drop down menu, and select each county or operation, and there's a contact number at the bottom of each one. Just...

    Southern California Pay Rates as of 4/17/19

    All wages stated are the starting paramedic pay for each division and company. I called HR directly on all of these, with the exception of Riverside County. San Diego: $19.20 (12 hr) $15.00 (24 hr) Mercy San Diego: $15.00 (all rates) Imperial is still too messed up right now. All I know is...

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    I went to the AMR Amarillo internal site, and downloaded them. Not 100% sure if they still use them, but there weren’t any new updates. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rLjdeaDODda3UmFqz4EijNf18u-tMYw3/view?usp=drivesdk

    Ellis County TX EMS

    Yeah, honestly I got more out of the secretary than HR.

    Ellis County TX EMS

    So I recently called these guy's ops to try and find out some information, and not going to lie, it was like pulling teeth. Only thing I found out is that Ellis county does some IFT and 911, and neighboring Johnson county does only 911. As far as protocols and pay goes, I got the generic "you'll...

    Eureka CA Ambulance companies

    Well there's Arcata, and from what it looks like, their equipment doesn't look too bad (All mods and power cots). Little mom and pop from what it sounds like. I was interested in them awhile back, and I straight up had to ask for a copy of their application to be mailed to me, after calling them...

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    @RocketMedic Really, in a perfect world, I’m looking for a 911 operation, in a larger city, with a university, that is willing to work with a school schedule, and has a BLS fire department. I just don’t mind the idea of staying with AMR since most every division I’ve talked to and been with has...

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    Huh, I thought they were just 911. At least that’s the way a lot of the Indeed and Glassdoor reviews seemed to indicate. Know anything else about Amarillo? Like is it just city limits, or do they do county too? Doesn’t sound the worst from what the reviews seem to indicate. Yep. Honestly...

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    Anyone know anything about either of these operations? Just curious about pay, reputation, IFT to 911 ratio, and how the fire dynamic is for them (like ALS or BLS, and fire takes pt lead or EMS takes lead). I already talked to Hunt county AMR which sounded nice, but the conversation didn’t go...
