I have done 2 shifts in the past 2 weeks, job shadowing for a small community. This company is owned by the city and it is all EMT-B and EMT-I based, volunteer paid per run. BLS transport and ALS intercept. However I have not got one call or transfer in the two 12 hour shifts that I scheduled. The ambulance director told me that, "In a small town you will never expect what is going to come up." The hospital that they send their patients to, they offered a tour of their ER to me. However they only had 6 ER rooms and a trauma room. and one small psych room and it is listed as a Level 3 Trauma Center and the level 2 is only 45 minutes by ground transport. While I was on the tour I would've expected maybe one or two patients in the ER. "None nada zip:rofl:!" This particular hospital has one inpatient wing adjacent to the ER. During the day other agencies were getting paged 50 to 60 miles from the quarters I was shadowing. Has any other EMTs out there ever worked or have done ride alongs with a company with no calls?
