    AMR transfers?

    FP-C renew question

    I doubt they would go through the effort to actually contact IBSC. If they did anything additional it would probably just to look up his cert on IBSC website and see if that expiration date matches his card.

    Anyone else ever failed 3 times or more??

    Just stating to make sure others were aware. At first I read it and wondered how you went from being a fresh medic to a supervisor so fast but then I saw the dates on your post and it made more sense.

    Mapping in Texas

    This is not a rule for California, SoCal, or the west coast. If anything it was your company’s policy. For my ground job we are trained to use the Thomas Guides in case the GPS system goes down.

    Who's fully staffed?

    My ground job is close to fully staffed. I think we are only down 1-2 medics but have a handful of EMTs who are finishing up medic school right now. For my flight job we only have 1 clinical spot open in the state for a nurse. Medics are completely staffed.

    Is this outdated?

    There has been a decent amount of changes in 20+ years. You would be fine with a text book a couple of years outdated but not 20.
