Not in any hurry to relocate but just curious about some decent services for a (future) medic in the sunshine state. Some of the ones I am interested in so far are Gadsden and Leon County in the big bend. Alachua down near Gainesville, especially interested in how their single role Rescue LT works. Family/Friends in and around Tally, Gainesville and Tampa/Orlando - so ideally those regions broadly speaking.

Florida has a LOT of medic positions available. Alachua County will hire you as a Paramedic and send you to fire school. The pay is not bad and its rumored that they will be getting Kelly days soon. Marion County (Ocala) hires single cert Paramedics and has a 3 week Kelly day. Also Citrus County (Crystal River) hires single cert Paramedics.

I did get a chance to speak with the recruiting Captain at Alachua today which definitely clarified my questions about their medic roles.

Yeah, but what about on the coast?

Disney World seems to be hiring Medics quite often (friend works there); pay seems low, but she said cost of living is low if you get away from the immediate area around Disney World
