    Medic Ambulance Service Vallejo, Ca.

    OP- Are you already working as an EMT in the SF Bay Area for another company? I don't have details about this particular company as I have never worked there. It seems though that average pay (starting) in the bay area for an IFT BLS EMT is $11/hr. I know of companies that pay less and some...

    Help with lung auscultation

    Not sure if this is the appropriate place for this thread. I've read several related threads on the forum and also searched online. I am a relatively new EMT and would like your input about LS on more "difficult" patients. Before auscultating, I always ask the patient to take deep breaths...

    Northern California EMT

    I got that email as well. I am not interested in applying for the position as I just got a job elsewhere. I know that they were recently hiring for Contra Costa County IFT. They may still be recruiting.

    Rock Medicine

    Your experience with Bay Medic (Concord)

    Wow, thanks for taking the time to include the actual links to each company's website. Yes, I applied to all of those companies. The companies that use an online app (ProT, Royal, PPlus) have my status "pending." The companies that use the traditional paper format have my app on file for the...

    Your experience with Bay Medic (Concord)

    Thanks for the info AnthonyTheEmt. None of the BLS companies seem to be hiring right now... (including BayMedic). I commute a lot throughout alameda county and have never seen one of their rigs.

    Your experience with Bay Medic (Concord)

    Anyone here on emtlife have experience with Bay Medic in Concord (Bay Area)? I'd love to hear from a current/former emt there. Shifts types, working conditions, rigs, scheduling flexibility, probation.... I would like to put in an app with them. Thanks
