A few of you that know me a little more than others know...

Dispatch Operations/Emergency Response SME – Baghdad, Iraq
Well I am still in orientation. I have a few more FTO rides to do, a couple 911 shifts to pull, and some hospital rotations.
When I went through EMT school in SC we weren't required to do hospital clinical or rotations. We just had to do some ride outs with our local service. Well I am...
Was wondering how many other agencies have issues with radio bleed over from other services. One of our fire channels is constantly getting tone outs from a service several counties away. Its really annoying, but I guess the only way to fix it is to reprogram all the radios and...
The thread title is completely irrelevant to this post but I just wanted to say that.
Anyways, I had an interview today with our local 911 service!
The whole application process consisted of applying (duh), pre-assessment evaluation (strongly agree/disagree), if you pass that then you are...

I've heard by word of mouth that the nation will be changing the paramedic certifications, to where you have to receive a degree to become a paramedic.

Hey all!! I apologize for any misspelled words, I am on my cell phone.
I went to a local paid/vollie fire squad today that has a medic unit and placed an app. I intend to run the medic unit and fire calls when on shift, if accepted.
They mentioned PAT test which has never been a big deal for...
Quick question... I am a little uneducated on NAEMT, I have researched their website but is the membership worth it? Is the scholarship worth a membership? From what I can see the only thing that will benefit me is that I will be able to APPLY for a scholarship, everything...
