    AMR Austin?

    Thanks! What nearby AMR operations run 911? I'm planning on moving to the area.. and want to be able to transfer from my current 911 operation. Then I want to get on with a third service like ATCEMS.

    Napa AMR

    My Driving Record - Please Let Me Know If I'm Disqualified (EMT)

    I'm currently in paramedic school in California.. and work in a busy 911 system in the San Francisco bay area. There is nothing like the structure that ATCEMS has in CA. ATCEMS has always been on my radar. I love Austin and would love to work for an agency like ATCEMS. I like what you said...

    Bay Area ambulance companies

    I second Royal Ambulance. I worked there as my first EMS job.. and they are a great company to work for. I worked there for a year before moving on to a 911 company. I felt like it was more of a family than anything else. They are very concerned with what their people are aiming for. They...
