im actually doing my internship in santa barbara(tomorrow is potentially my last day), the issue lies is that it takes me depending on the time of day 5 hours to get home, i've got a family so its hard when an emergency pops up to get back home which we had a family health scare and it took 4.5hrs to get home. I love santa barbara the system and how amr is ran up here, its a super laid back gig compared to anywhere i've worked.I just got on with Santa Barbara and seems like a pretty legit system and heard good things from current employees Bit of a move north but still the beach haha
yeah and i currently live super close to the oc/sd county border so aturally it makes more sense to go south, however i know its not nearly a pampered ops like sb is. if i could i totally would hunker down in SBC and ride it out especially if i could end up in south county where they dont run more than 5-6 calls a 24hr shift on most days lol.Yeah that is a long commute to not relocate for. Currently for me it’s about an hour an 45 minutes. Probably max for me. 5 hours will be crazy!!
Late to the game,Care San Diego and Care OC/LA are two different companies. I dont think Falk owns Care SD, and the Care LA/OC are still marked as Care, not Falk.
But with the Care SD company, if Falk gets it, they may run Falk branded rigs.
Wonder how this change is gonna affect SDFRD ops. Dont they have some units besides the regular AMR units, that are Fire station based with one FF and one AMR guy?
Also need to include the fact that they are still getting our pay wrong after 6 month into service in Alameda county. With the influx of care people coming to help the system they forgot that they only came with a set amount of equipment and fail to realise that **** breaks so we have crews delayed into service due to waiting for other crews to come back.Late to the game,
but yes care oc vs sd are different companies.
if falck takes over San Diego they will be dirty bird rigs
care eventually Will be changed to red and the white and blue will be historY they’re are slowly transitioning the company to corporate. Even most rigs at cars now have a falck company under the care logo on the side. It’s only time.
the dirty bird is going county but county just like care did with cities.
I’m interested to see is how the hell falck will float dealing with a **** show in alameda and San Diego. They are already pulling employees from care oc/la to run up to Oakland to fill shifts. And some old co workers of mine are permanently transitioning to falck alameda to fix staffing issues. San Diego is going to be the same disaster if they don’t completely revamp the system and offer considerably better wages.
Definitely eating my pop corn, but in all honesty rather have to work for “care/falck” again vs amr most times.
I know hard to believe but care before falck was a pretty well oiled machine for the most part. I’m not surprised because everything is remote and if Jonathan L is in charge of payroll for you guys it sucks as I was always at that guys office as that was the only way it would get done.Also need to include the fact that they are still getting our pay wrong after 6 month into service in Alameda county.
