    Who's fully staffed?

    I know plenty of medics who leave places like that because cost of living outpaces what they're willing to pay. Or they don't want to do it for free anymore

    The FEMA graveyard?

    Yes. When they stand up new operations, a lot of times they pull from the FEMA fleet yard. I know when I was in the first batch for ABQ, NM AMR, all of our units came from the FEMA fleet except one that came from River Medical that they watned to get rid of.

    Exactly. I work for a city EMS dept. completely separate from the city fire or police departments. I’m a city employee with all the benefits that come with it but I get to concentrate on what I am good at, EMS only.

    the 100% directionless thread

    That got done the morning after the call. I had made a comment that my back felt like it was on fire on the call, and my supervisor met me at our station with paperwork before I went home. He kinda lectured me about trying to not report it lol

    Is this outdated?

    Honestly, I don't know that I'd even use that to gain a general overview of an EMT. That's horribly horribly outdated

    Who's fully staffed?

    As of today we are short two. Monday is their first day as new grad nurses at a local hospital. But we already have two part time that are set to move up to those spots. We are kinda short part timers, but that's not too bad. At my service to promote you have to wait for someone to retire (yep...

    EMT Insurance

    Most of the time (and not counting Jersey and their weird laws to which I know nothing of) if you’re off duty and acting as a private citizen you’re covered by the Good Samaritan law in most states. I don’t ever do more than simple lay person first aid anyways if that, with very few and specific...

    Ugh I think I screwed up my back a couple shifts ago lifting someone heavy on an emergent patient. It’s slowly gotten worse so now I have to see what I can do.

    Orlando Fire is hiring for EMS-only

    12 hour shifts? Peak truck type gig? And how do the benefits compare to the sworn FFs? Or are the single role people treated as the red-headed ******* step children that a lot of places that go this route do?

    EMT Badge? Yes or No.

    We got issued metal badges a few months ago for the first time for a memorial service for one of our medics we lost to cancer. Out day to day uniforms are polos w/ embroidered patch and name on them. The only time we wear badges are when we are wearing the class-A uniforms for special occasions.

    lee county ems testing

    Florida? I mean it's the state that went to NR and then back to their stupid easy state test because of a high failure rate. So FL test takers might not be the best barometer of how hard a test is.

    Elevated CK as Contraindication for Succs?

    I saw this a few months back when I was putting together a lecture on RSI for my agency. That and patients with MG were too I hadn't heard much of, but there's mentions of in literature.
