    I cannot wait tell our truckies about this, would have been a hell of an April fools joke to print up a fake policy.

    EVOC needed

    Those all list agency affiliation or approved academy enrollment as a pre or co-requisite for the class. So OP, perhaps if the agency you're looking at will let you use a vehicle as per SRJC's policy or at least hire you pending completion of one of these, that might be your only option

    Westport EMS sees influx in calls, decrease in volunteers

    The problem isn’t training the teenagers to do the job or even allowing them to ride along or run calls. It’s using them or really any volunteers to provide a service that should be considered as essential as PD or FD. Why pay when someone’s willing to do it for free? As long as that’s an option...

    It is magic for kidney stones, as I have experienced myself on multiple occasions. I think it would be nice to have as kind of a halfway between IV Tylenol and fent

    AMR Riverside

    Not for me, but Im a medic. As far as EMTs go it really just depended on staffing at the time. If we were low on EMTs you might not even go to BLS at all. Other times it would be 6mos to a year but, you could pick up ALS OT.

    Highest paying medic Jobs in CA?

    I heard Hemet is starting medics at 27/hr and Desert Cities might be even more. SD pays garbage most places, but their protocols are not that far off Riverside's. I went to MVC, albeit when it was still RCC, but good luck, it's actually a good program IMO.

    Just make sure you get the proper sized hubs, correct travel fork and all that. Over the years, width of dropouts and axle types have changed. Dont be me and buy the wrong wheelset for your frame!

    Longest shift, mood on shift and stress

    Ahh, ye olde suck it up because other people have it worse. My grandpa picked fruit in Central Cali too, so we wouldnt have to. None of that means we should accept **** mental health and subpar working conditions.

    If Cal Fire wanted you have those things, they would have been issued at the service center.

    Longest shift, mood on shift and stress

    I cant speak for the OP but i'm gonna make an educated guess that @CALEMT signed up for exactly zero days for that. If you are not familiar with Cal Fire aka Forcey the Bear, those kinds of forces are the norm, not the exception. So the legislation can be named for them, not the guys being...

    Rialto Medics refuse to enter SNF, Claiming Unspecified COVID law.

    They run with single function ambulance operators. I would venture to say the punishment will vary depending on if these were suppression guys or not.
