Here is the question about Hall, I know they have been around a while....... But how "secure" are they? Be a shame to see a great local EMS provider get bought out by AMR or some company like that seeking to take over the entire area.

Fish, if i remember right the county is divided into unique opperating areas. If someone wants to.buy out a company all the other areas have to agree on it. Hall has built his empire since 1971. Seems like he did something right. I doubt there would be any way for amr/rural metro to buy them.

Goalcoal, are you already an emt or not certified yet?

Hall is owned and has been owned by the Hall family since creation. The owner of Hall is Harvey Hall who is also the mayor of Bakersfield. I would say Hall Ambulance is very secure. On the other hand, AMR is on the downfall in many parts of California and on the verge of losing the majority of their contracts in Southern California. So I don't believe it would be AMR to take them over but crazier things have happened.

I don't think AMR will lose San Bernardino and Riverside counties when the time comes.

I remember talking to a coworker who worked at hall about a year ago as an EMT. I don't remember the hourly wage but he was saying most medics were pulling in around $38000. The cost of living in Bakersfield and the surrounding area is going to be about half of what it costs in SD. So that money will go a little farther than it would down south.

Thanks for the response, I guess that is starting? I wonder if they pay for experience. I will have to email and ask

I don't work there. From what I recall, they have a step system. As you move up steps, you get hire pay. Step 1 was $12.88/hour for EMTs.
