The fire extinguisher is not just for show
So every EMT student already has a job lined up before they graduate? Or has to be affiliate with an agency to take the state test to get their initial certification? Because that's a sweet deal, esp for all the new grads who are looking for work.My very dear yet underinformed friend,
There exist at least two states,
Which have policies and laws which are elderly,
And preclude any EMT from being licensed,
Unless affiliated with an agency.
So if an EMT gets fired from their job for an operational violation, their EMT cert is automatically revoked? I mean, if you need to be affiliated with an agency to hold a valid EMT card, that means once you are no longer affiliated your EMT card should be revoked, as you no longer meet that requirement.
I understand needing to be affiliated with an agency to practice (need for medical direction, QA, malpractice insurance, education, etc), but I would like to learn more about these two states that say if you are not affiliated with an agency you are unable to hold an EMT certificate.
