    Ambulance Companies in LA

    So I've been an employee for Medlife ambulance, by today seems like the :censored::censored::censored::censored: hit the fan. Is there any GOOD (for whatever that means in the EMT world) companies out here in the LA area that do have their county certification and seem decent to work for?

    Medlife Ambulance is a great company to work for!

    The sad thing about medlife As a current employee, I can tell you they give ZERO raises. So basically you're stuck till you decide to F off

    Medlife Ambulance is a great company to work for!

    Recently got picked up by Medlife They seem pretty legit... for someone who just interacted with their management. The pay rate is more decent than some companies out, base pay at 10.50 but with experience it varies. I myself am starting out at 12. So hope for the best out of this company

Myself, I'll clearly stand on the we deserve better platform. It used to be that we worked as EMT's thinking that a least we'd...

    NEMSA for LA Co

    Im just curios, for those of us working for all those private ambulance companies that don't always treat us so favorably, why do we put up with it? I usually hear how the turnover rate at most of these companies are great either because no one is getting their set schedules, not being allowed...

    I'm a little confused here with a question I have yet to look up. In order to become a Paramedic, you have to have been an active EMT for 6 months or a year. Im confused if you have to be an EMT for a 911 company or just an EMTfor any company. Anyone know the answer?

    Interview Question...

    So I have my first interview tomorrow as an EMT. Now I know its usually nice to get dressed up nicely and all, but as amateur as this question is going to sound, is it really necessary to shave? I don't have this huge bushy beard or anything... but man how i hate a clean face lol. Besides...
