    Paramedic Moving to Henderson, NV

    Interview went very well, was offered $15 an hour. Had a phone interview with AMR the following Monday, waiting to hear back on their offer but most likely going with Community. Just seemed like a nicer place. For the curious, the schedule there is 4-3-3-4, on-off-on-off. 12 hours days...

    Paramedic Moving to Henderson, NV

    Gonna bump this one. Does anyone have current information on the pay scale of Community ambulance? Advanced EMT, almost three years experience, heading for medic soon as I can. I'm flying to Vegas on Friday for an interview with Community (trying to move there, but USAA won't go through with...

    AMR transfers?

    You brought up some very good points and I really appreciate the advice. My thoughts on everything were coming from the advice of some people in my current system that used to work for the local AMR. I suppose I really won't have a good idea of the Vegas AMR situation until I get an interview...

    AMR transfers?

    High call volume doesn't bother me, here in ABQ we average somewhere between 10 to 16 calls in a 13 hours shift. I admit, 16 is my record and I think 3 of those were cancel enroutes, but you get the idea. Still, big point here is that I'm not yet a medic. Still just a lowly advanced. So...

    AMR transfers?

    Thanks for the info, y'all. As I mentioned in a different thread I'm planning on moving the family to the Vegas area soon and AMR is pretty much the only option out there. Jeebus, I swear I've been saying "We're gonna move soon" for the last three years... anyway, was looking to see if working...

    AMR transfers?

    Hello all. Looking at switching to AMR in my local area with the intent of moving to Vegas in the next couple months and working for AMR there. Does AMR allow for inter state transfers while staying with the company? If so, do they offer moving assistance of any sort? Thanks for the info.

    EMS work in Nevada?

    Thanks for the info, I couldn't tell if they transported or not when I first starting looking into jobs in the area. Sadly, they're not hiring at the moment. I'll keep my eye on them, though.

    EMS work in Nevada?

    Ah. does not help me at all. Vegas is kind of a requirement. Looks like my EMS choices for a 911 service are AMR, and AMR-with-a-different-name. I know AMR gets all kinds of flack, but does anyone have experience with AMR Vegas? Looking at the job search websites my only other option is...

    EMS work in Nevada?

    See, I have the MGIB, not the post 9-11. With the kicker, I get roughly $2k a month straight cash for taking a full term, no bonuses for doing more. While that is actually more than I make in a month as an advanced, with FTO bonus, it doesn't get me health insurance. I'm not using the VA, and...

    EMS work in Nevada?

    Family and I are moving to Nevada in the next couple months (hopefully). We've been planning on Las Vegas, but looking at the political climate there I'm starting to look for other spots as well, just in case we find anything else. I'm wondering what the job situation is there. I'd love some...

    Albuquerque Ambulance

    0.o Dude, I didn't even know that was a post at some point. Now it's usually San Mateo and I-40 that gets the most units, but with the call volume we have now there's barely time to say hello to anyone else.

    Albuquerque Ambulance

    AMR I'm not so sure about. I wanna say they cover the south a bit, but seriously, don't quote me. Sorry.

    Albuquerque Ambulance

    Depends on how the call is triaged. More "critical" codings get a transport capable rescue from the FD, others just an engine, the most critical get both. (On that note, I'm still trying to figure out the fire logic of "more people must mean better care") The FD, for the most part, will only...

    Albuquerque Ambulance

    OK, so AAS is the contracted service for all of ABQ and Bernillio county. You have AMR working the counties to the south, and Superior Ambulance works 911 throughout the state, but only handles IFT in ABQ. The ABQ and BernCo area is a two tiered response system, with both AAS and fire...

    Albuquerque Ambulance

    I'm currently working for AAS as an EMT-I / FTO (yes, New Mexico still uses Intermediate instead of Advanced). It looks like this ad is for the Espanola branch, which I admit I've never worked for. From what I've heard, they work 48/96s out of the hospital, sounded like most of the calls were...

    Looking to move to Las Vegas

    It's my understanding that AEMT and Intermediate are the same thing, at least that's how it is in New Mexico. NREMT calls it advanced, some states call it Intermediate. Unless you're talking I-99, but honestly I don't think anyone actually knows what that is, NREMT included. As for the course...

    Looking to move to Las Vegas

    I'm kind of in the same boat as the OP, at least in the "I'm planning on moving to Vegas" part. I'm currently a basic in Albuquerque, NM, only been with my company a few months but not planning on moving till next summer (don't want to interrupt kids school year). I'll have my...
