    New EMT and Pregnant?

    I think the two bright pink lines are telling enough ha. I can see all your points. Around here, being a woman is bad enough, especially with all of the older employees. It’s extremely sexist, and most of the guys I know have specifically said they don’t want to work with a woman in the first...

    New EMT and Pregnant?

    I can understand the confusion. My area of service is very traditional. Men (it is mostly men) do not want women in the service and are very obvious about it. A local woman actually had to file a lawsuit recently and it was taken to federal court last week.

I just really worry about the social...

However, I don’t believe in abortion and so am going through...

Not to mention the part time fire department I applied for is just now looking to review their applications and it’s been about 10 months for them. You probably have a...

    AMR Kansas?

    Hey y’all! Last week I took the entrance exam for AMR here in Kansas. I finished top 5 so I received an interview for this Friday the 9th. First off, what should I expect? I’ve done tons of interviews, and always done well. I’ve also done interviews for the largest fire department around...
