You can probably get a job as a medic doing IFT or event staffing until it goes off your record. It might be difficult to get a 911 job but it’s not an automatic disqualificatio. And your chances increase after a few years with a good driving record.
There is an app called twiage that allows us to notify the local ER in Hudson Valley area of NY without having to call.
Mobile MDT which a NYC protocol app and tells you the closes hospital by specialty is.
Both apps are quite local.
How long does it take for the helicopter to take off? That how long it takes to be a flight medic. One second you are ground medic, the next second you are a flight medic. Everything that goes up, must come down. You become a ground medic just as quickly.
Transcare and SeniorCare say to 6 to 12 months. Don't really expect that. They mess with some people while letting other people directly into 911.
Look into NJ, Long Island and Westchester also. Empress in Yonkers will give you a mix of 911 and transport.
I work a private IFT company and handle SNF emergencies primarily. I don't see why a BLS crew could not transport an emergency. They have an ambulance. Arrange for an ALS intercept and go meet them unless the ER is closer.
This is Jersey. I am sure it's not company policy. The company wants to get paid.
The medics are fly car based and can take calls to the er on IFT or 911 rigs. There is no reason a jersey bls IFT unit couldn't call for ALS and transport. Did it all the time when I worked a bls IFT rig.
