So I have a question that probably hasn't been asked before and I was curious for an answer. I'm an EMR from Canada, do you think it's ok to identity myself as a paramedic? I find it hard to explain to people what I am when they ask or when I have to give first aid(has actually happened more times than you'd think). Nobody has any clue what an Emergency Medical Responder is, so I usually just tell people I'm a paramedic. Is that ok to do? Also, do you think it's ok to wear personal clothing that identifies me as a 'paramedic'? Such as a t-shirt that says 'paramedic' on it just for example. Thanks for the help in advance.
