I'm an EMT in California for AMR
And was looking to move to clarkston, Georgia or somewhere around that area. I was wondering does AMR out there run 911? Or where in dekalb county does Amr run 911....if they do? Also how is it?
Any advice or input would be much appreciated
Thank you in advance

AMR has the complete Dekalb County contract. They run an all-ALS system with I/P trucks. Dekalb is a big county that can take you anywhere from close to the city to outskirts with longer transport times. Standard Georgia EMS protocols. Some fire department based first response.

Have a coworker from is from Dekalb and moved back there. Primary ALS 911, he says he get's at least 1 full code per shift. Pay is way better than anything you'll see on the West Coast.

Seriously? As someone who lived in both WA and now in GA, I find that difficult to believe.

And "at least one code per shift"? I also call BS on that.

I work in Dekalb PT it's a decent system. High call volume 20+ Day units in the county. Having a lot of staffing issues right now. Have separate 911 units and IFT units. Decent equipment and decent trucks. Night and weekend shift diff. Medics start out around 19 an hour

They're so short. I'm sure you could get on a 911 truck to start out. There's at least 6-8 slots in filled everyday for 911 trucks alone not counting call outs.
