We have mandatory almost every weekend during the "nice months"

We do a lot of Special Event standbys and have to mandatory folks all summer.
Yeah but your mandatories aren’t to do BLS transfers and wheelchair van calls. Working here is like buying a Hellcat and using it for mall parking lot security.

Good first 24, picked up a day half at our way rural 911 station.

Partner is 20, local rich kid, besties with the supervisor. Wears a silly non agency ball cap. Got pissy when I ordered him not to text and drive, “if you have a comment about everything it’s going to be a bad day. No one else has a problem with it”. At least he stopped doing it. Like...how is this normally tolerated?

This is a job to get a better job with. I keep telling myself that, and every day it gets a little more pressing.

Just seven months left on the lease...

My New Mexico, Oklahoma and Colorado are inactive. Texas and CA are active, reckon I'll carry those two because they're lengthy to get (Texas) and expensive (CA). The rest are just NR and nominal fees except for Oklahoma, which apparently wants $210 to reactivate it.

All of my NREMT CE is done and the UMBC recertification is done too, NAEMT instructor course completed.

Shucks. My flightbridgeed online university expired before i could take advantage of the test questions.
What package did you sign up for? I’m willing to bet that if you emailed them directly, they’d work with you.

One of our old flight nurses emailed them about an online course and they were prompt, professional, and accommodating.

I believe it was the middle pricing option with the prep book and the 2 weeks of unlimited questions.

Ill send them an email shortly. Worth a try.

I had been trying to figure out when i originally purchased it, i knew I was getting close but I thought it expired next month.

I got mandatoried, outside of our policy, after I’d clocked out and was going home, due to a no-show. Supervisor used a personal phone to provoke an answer and tricked me, would get terminated if I didn’t reply. I am 100% done with this job. Money does not replace time.

Good news is you now have their personal phone and can ignore that one too!

If it's outside of policy, how can they actually enforce it?
It’s Texas where right to work is a thing. Might win the argument but lose the war. And the best time to find a job is when you have a job and aren’t under emergent financial pressure to get one.
