Does anyone know about EMT reciprocity in Washington? I currently maintain both EMT and Paramedic certs elsewhere. What about challenging the Washington state EMT certification test?

I went the reciprocity route when I moved to WA about 15 years ago. At the time, I was NREMT-I/85 but since WA didn't have the equivalent then, I had to take the test as a basic. In order to take the test, you have to be affiliated with an agency first. Keep in mind, this was well before WA adopted the new standards, so my information may be dated.
