    Is anyone familiar with Park Medics? I have heard it is an actual job but it seems rather elusive to me in all my research. Is this the same thing as a park ranger? Any info at all would be greatly appreciated.

    I've seen some on USA jobs...

    Most of the ones I have seen require you to be a ranger also, so there is a law enforcement component.

    There are some NPS locations that hire just for EMS. @Jon did it last summer or the one before

    I may apply to do this for the summer. If I go through with it and it works out Ill post about it. Majority of the paramedic only jobs are seasonal for the summer and you apply via USA jobs, for those who where not sure

    I am surprised no one has poped up on here that has worked for them. It would be great to hear from someone who has. The pay is not that great, but if I can't find another international contract by the time the season comes around, I'll try my luck with the park service for the summer
