    Hot Take?

    In general, I can understand that. But in the case of an overdose, from whatever narcotic, I would have thought it would be SOP on either PD's part or EMS to pat the patient down for needles or additional narcotics. And if not, doesn't that exacerbate the problem? If this guy were to go shoot...

    Hot Take?

    Appleton firefighter, father of 3 is shot and killed by patient they brought back with Narcan I can understand the sentiment, but I'm too uneducated on statistics for this to form a full opinion. Also, how did they not pat him down right before or right after they administered it?

    AMR Hiring SoCal?

    No, of course, thank you for the info. Very excited, all I know is how LACo operates, so Riverside should be interesting.

    AMR Hiring SoCal?

    Not yet, I have orientation soon, and hopefully they'll key me in with what area I'll be working. Any differences between the two? Call volume, types of calls, etc?

    the 100% directionless thread

    Anyone know about AMR Parental leave? Our first born is due later this year and I'm curious if and how much time they might give me off to help out around the house.

    Privatized EMS in Placentia CA

    Interesting, I guess I never really had much thought on protocols out there. What would a Basic's scope look like if EMR is comparable to LACo?

    Maybe a different discussion, but the more I learn about the use of flycars, the more I wonder why SoCal doesn't adopt that type of system if they want to cut costs. I guess the state in question might be the answer as well though.

    Should this pass, what company would be most likely to take it?

    Yeah, they said EMT's go through a FTO period where they either get ALS or BLS rated? Something like that. But either way, I'm looking forward to (hopefully) getting a call back.

    Did my interview for AMR Riverside, they said there is no skills test involved, only what takes place during the FTO period after Orientation. I would've thought there would be one.

    I commute two hours one way now, into Santa Monica. I don't have a desire to see such commutes for a long time lol. Maybe once I get little more beneath my belt I can head out to northern pastures.
