    Out of curiosity what are your call volumes in your county? Your correct we have wall time at hospitals but that's out of our power to fix. County has a 40 min window but hospitals can only do so much to unload. Honestly I'll take the wall time because In the end your gonna run another call...

    There isn't in terms of protocol. It's the volume of calls that happen in the county that makes it a good learning experience but that's my opinion. As for fto process no idea when you didn't pass but as of last couple academys there has been an increase in ****ery of ftos not allowing to fail...

    Aprz some of what you say are true but consider this most of our hospitals are less then 15 mins away from your location. Yea our medic pool has been going down in terms of quality due to the fact that paramedics plus won't let fto fail people. They would simply be shuffled through different fto...

Day bls units are usually open but you need to be working full time for 6 months and understand the county really well to get I to lead status emt in order to get the 3...

Add on fto which is another dollar you can make roughly $44 an hr but it's the Bay area so cost of living here is hella expensive so you would still have to work alot of ot to be...

    man thats some nice info on PUM. I can see the whole thing about work force working for less. Alot of our senior EMT/Paramedics pre-transition have left for better opportunities and then that leaves us with a whole lot of new medics and EMTS making less. We currently have two tier pay scales...

    Yea it does pretty much, except the company cant handle the amount of money they are losing. If we go PUM, im guessing at this point, the county will bill the patients and then they pay the private company. the county also is able to get funding from the GEMT money if they design a PUM system...
