    SF AMR?

    Arizona Certificate of Necessity

    To anyone working in Arizona, how exactly does the certificate of necessity work when there are multiple companies and agencies overlapping one area?

    Ellis County TX EMS

    So I recently called these guy's ops to try and find out some information, and not going to lie, it was like pulling teeth. Only thing I found out is that Ellis county does some IFT and 911, and neighboring Johnson county does only 911. As far as protocols and pay goes, I got the generic "you'll...

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    Anyone know anything about either of these operations? Just curious about pay, reputation, IFT to 911 ratio, and how the fire dynamic is for them (like ALS or BLS, and fire takes pt lead or EMS takes lead). I already talked to Hunt county AMR which sounded nice, but the conversation didn’t go...

My husband and I were 100% preventing, careful and consistent, and absolutely did NOT want this right now. This was seriously a 1 in 100 chance. However, I don’t believe in abortion and so am going through...

    Tucson Area EMS?

    I've been looking into moving out to the Tucson area for a little while, and was wondering how the 911 system is set up out there. Just laying it all out: What cities does AMR cover and what cities do fire departments cover? Does AMR extend into areas of the county outside of city? Is the...

    Arizona EMS Questions? RSI and fun stuff like that?

    I’m considering moving out to Arizona, and was just curious about how you guy’s protocols are. Just going off what I’ve read, it looks like only some agencies are allowed to RSI and preform surgical cricothyrotomy. Do you guys know which one’s can and can’t RSI or surgical cric?

    Is anyone out there happy with their AMR union contract?

    Greetings from Washington state, Let me start by saying, I love my job and what I do. Co-workers are great, supervisors are approachable and available, and the schedule has been flexible while being in college.
