    Online EMT in AZ

    So long story short I had my EMT in CA from 2004-2012 and became a paramedic in 2011 I believe and it expired in 2017. I also had NREMT for both but let them go because I had never planned on moving. Life circumstances happened and due to health I stopped working September of 2015. Things have...

    What "paramedic discretion" reason have you trauma activated for?

    Phoenix EMS

    I live in Phoenix & it sounds like from what I can find on them, they are a rinky dink little 5 ambulance company doing whatever they can to upgrade their charges to get paid more. That’s at least what I can gather from frivolous lawsuits they have filed against AZ EMS

    AMR Victorville

    I moved out of state to AZ and have debated renewing my P Card and jumping through all the hoops to get my NREMT again so I can get my AZ card to work very part time but it's too much money & not really worth it in the long run. My ex works in Bakersfield & keeps pestering me to come work with...

    Do you have a nickname?

    Depends on the day of the week & who I'm working with. One of the local departments call me nugget & small fry because I'm 5 foot nothing. My regular station & crew call me the black widow because I'm a black cloud and I keep eating through partners alive.

    Americare Hiring Process for Medics

    Just my two cents.... When I worked at Americare in the past few years, as a female I was treated like a second class citizen and was made to feel like I couldn't do the job despite being VERY capable, largely due to the fact I wouldn't & didn't fraternize with male management. Female...
