She completed paramedic school previously but could never complete registry due to some personal health reasons so a lot is a review for her. She’s an AEMT which gave her a...

    Anyone took a break from EMS?

    Am I the only one who needed a much needed break from being a Paramedic? Took a year off to go back to aircraft mechanic and recover. 911 SSM burned me out, I couldn’t stand being on an ambulance and helping patients wasn’t fun anymore. Now I’m getting back into EMS and am super excited and...

    CCP-C vs FP-C

    I’m taking a critical care course which at the end allows me to test for either CCP-C or FP-C. Which of the two would be of better benefit? Why would you test for one and not the other? What restricts would one give you over the other?

    Good transport services?

    My fiancé is from Florida, as soon we she finishes paramedic school we are looking to move back to the west coast. Obviously she wants Florida first but we wouldn’t be opposed to other places.

    Good transport services?

    Hello. Are there any good ALS transport services out there? I’m at the point in my career where 911 isn’t as fun as it once was, and I much prefer a good ALS or critical care transfer. I hear the horror stories of all the private EMS services and was seeing where some of the better transport...

    Medic gigs around the orlando area in florida

    You can always do AMR. The do some 911, and you have the option to transfer anywhere in the nation. People will talk ****, but if you show up, run your calls and go home, AMR isn’t terrible. It’s the morale and drama that give it the bad rep.
