Hi all,
I’m moving to the Denver area in the next couple months from Orange County, CA and have about 2 years 911 experience in Santa Ana with Care Ambulance. As of now I’m planning on transferring to Falck in Aurora just because I’d be able to keep my seniority from Care but from all I’ve read on here it sounds like Falck is a place to avoid working at. If anyone has any recommendations on where to work as a 911 basic that’s not too far from Denver or if anyone works for Falck and can speak to what its like working there it would really be appreciated.

Honestly... I know very little about the area, but if I was in your shoes I'd transfer over to falck and look for a new job at the same time. That way you have a job when you move, so you can afford to live (maybe) while you try to get on with someone else like denver health.

What he said. Also a lot of the issues are more specific towards being a medic at Falck, my understanding is that Falck EMTs still do EMT things without Aurora fire walking super hard on them.

I third PotatoMedic's advice and what Tigger said about Falck.

Denver Health intermittently hires EMTs for a mix of detox van and ambulance shifts. Off the top of my head, your other options for 911 are Stadium in Golden, AMR in Boulder/Longmont, and Northglenn in Commerce City. Apex Paramedics don't do 911, but I've heard it's a decent place to work.

Kinda stalkerish to be replying to your post from a year and a half ago, but I'm also from OC and looking to move to CO. I also work for Care, out of Springs. Any updates? Did you end up finding a job or working at Falck Aurora?

Really just depends on what kind of EMS role you want to get into. Plenty of options on the front range but as an EMT you may end up driving or IFT type stuff more than anything. In the foothills you have a variety of services largely running 48/96 which makes the commute decent. You'll likely have more scope and ability to function as an EMT. We have IV in scope for starting lines, fluids and some medications so that opens up some decent options as an ER tech.

Right on, thank you! Any companies/agencies you recommend? Or companies/ agencies to stay away from? Looking for primarily 911 services, but am definitely willing to do (some) IFT.

As was alluded to, you'll need your IV certification for most services. Denver Health does 911 in Denver, Platte Valley does 911 in the northeast suburbs, Falck does 911 injuries Aurora, AMR does 911 in Boulder and Longmont, Stadium Medical has a small 911 operation in Golden, and UCHealth does 911 in Fort Collins. Gilpin County and Clear Creek County are in the foothills west of Denver and I believe they hire EMTs.

Apex Paramedics, Northglenn Ambulance, and Action Care are among the better regarded IFT agencies.

I haven't been in Colorado long enough and I've only worked for my agency and the ER, so it's hard to have a real opinion good or bad on services. There's been some good suggestions here. A lot of it is just narrowing down: do you want to work in the city/suburbs with a higher volume or more rural with longer transport times, limited resources and a typically lower volume?

Denver fire is hiring EMT non fire fighters. If you stay for two years, you get preference points if you want to go to the fire side.

I hear not good things about Mile-High and Columbine, would stay away. Friend that worked at Mountain States described it as "bleh." I think iCare is probably a good place to work but I'm not sure if doing flight transfers all day would be what you are looking for.

A friend just moved from Nevada to AMR in Denver works the entire front Range. She does a lot of long distance transports; but for her they are easy, because the shortest transports she did in Nevada was 110 miles (closest hospital). She says she likes it. Says it is a mix of 911 and IFT.
