    Getting your foot in the door as an EMS instructor

    Does anyone have experience as an EMT, Paramedic. or Health Science instructor? If so, how did you get your foot in the door? Was it AHA card classes to gain experience or another way ? When (if ever) in your career did you gain your NAEMSE Instructor Certification? If you taught at a community...

    Centura Health Denver

    Considering you need a bachelor's degree to be licensed in Colorado vs certified I'm not sure the education statement is entirely accurate 😂 but yes the hospital is a different environment.

    I'm currently working 911 in Las Vegas. City fire, County fire, Metro Police, and Private ambulance all have a huge number of employees (including myself) with full sleeve and large visible tattoos. We wear short sleeve shirts and no one gives a damn. It does not affect anyone's ability to...

    EMT Oath- My problem

    Thanks for making me read my reply from almost a decade ago. I can confirm in 2021 the oath mentioned is still dumb.

    US EMT to Norway

    Norway only recently started a 3 year bachelor degree for paramedics, just a few years back. What is "PMT"? Hopefully a medical doctor if it takes 9 years. I actually ended up obtaining a paramedic license in Denmark at the time Norway's first paramedic bachelor class was starting...

    Recommendations for gear bags whilst on shift

    Pulled the trigger on a 15L. Neither of the ones I had mentioned above. Trying to save space upfront since I'm on system status. I'll update my feedback on the bag once I have worked with it for a month or two. Its going to be a tight fit for my stuff, but I welcome the downsize and challenge...

Gotta carry my lunch, a stethoscope, tablet / kindle, rain jacket, sunglasses, 18oz water bottle, 20oz coffee tumbler. You know...

    Recommendations for gear bags whilst on shift

    Anyone have experience with Pelican backpacks? I know they make great hard cases but was surprised to see they made backpacks. I'm looking to try something new other than 5.11 for an EDC bag on an ambulance shift

    CCP-C vs FP-C

    Renewal cost is brutal. I would only get it if you're planning on flying or required by an employer. $325 (non-members) $225 (IAFCCP members). This is the reason I don't maintain any IBSC certs. That cost about twice as much as my State licence, NREMT, and CCEMTP renewal put together.

    What was your first 911 call?

    If I remember correctly, it was a lady who crashed her mobility scooter. Very USA
