Hello all I was wondering what have you guys heard of the EMS career in Kentucky from pay to actual cost of living in Kentucky specifically our 30 min or so from the Louisville area? I have been pursing firefighting here in CA for a couple years now. I have CFSM FF1 and IFSAC probroad Certs for firefighting. I was a volunteer firefighter for two years in CA, I work as an EMT in a very busy private 911 EMS system in southern CA for two years, and I work part time as an EMT for a fire department here is southern CA. But my girlfriend and here family are moving to Kentucky about 30min from the Louisville area within two years and I’m debating to go with them but I’ve been pursing Fire/EMS out here in Southern CA. I’m going to paramedic school this January and the reason I’m asking is because I’ve always wanted to be a firefighter/Paramedic here in southern CA. So I wondering if Fire/EMS is even comparable in Kentucky as a career option in relation to pay and cost of living in Kentucky?
