What is the best way to learn streets in an area that you are not familiar with? I'm looking for people that have moved to a different state or city for an EMS job. What is a the best way to learn in a short amount of time?
Do any of you put in the address in your phone gps and just use that going to the hospital?
When you're posted listen to the radio and map yourself to each call that's dispatched. From the place the truck started and from where you start.
Pay attention when people are telling stories and look up the addresses. Linking a place with a story helps you keep it in your head.
But as an intern you won't have to drive at all right? My internship area was incredibly confusing and I only ever really learned my way to the station and home...I going to be starting my internship in a huge city where I don't know my way around, so I am trying to learn where the main roads are and all the hospital locations. I have about 15 different hospitals where I am going so I have a lot to learn.
