Howdy.

I'm Tori, 20 years old, and born in raised in Houston, Texas. Too bad now I live in the middle of nowhere in Missouri. Whoo!

I am the daughter of a man who for 22 years was a paramedic in the Houston area, and he did it all from a wheelchair.

I have decided to follow in my father's figurative footsteps, and am looking into enrolling in EMT-B classes as soon as I can find a place around here that offers them. It's annoying, but what can you do?

So, yeah. Hi there.

So I gotta have ten posts before I can chat and whatever else... this seems like a good enough place to start.

I started looking into the EMS field after a couple firefighter friends told me it might be something I could do well. I said 'what the hell' and just finished first responder training (today, in fact) and EMT-B training starts on January 5th. I'm looking forward to it.

I don't have any real desire to get into firefighting, I'll let the combat people do what combat people do. I'd love to have transferable skills and travel, I'm seriously considering applying for peace corps after I get some experience, provided I decide against the paramedic track.

I'm a college graduate, but there's not a whole lot I can do with an English degree that I would enjoy doing. I'm a full time wage slave currently in a popular convenience store chain in the south, but thankfully they have a tuition reimbursement program - work will be paying for my first responder and EMT training.

Hi! Great forum. I'm Katie, 19, born in CT.
I passed my EMT-B last spring and am thinking about taking EMT-I next year. I'm going through the common argument in my head: whether to stay an EMT-B and get valuable experience, or go on and get advanced training sooner.

While taking college classes majoring in nursing I am working as an EMT-B for a local service.

Hello!

Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. My name is Sarah and I will be starting EMT-B school on January 27, 2008. My goal is to go onto EMT-P and obtain my NREMT-P certification.

I am INCREDIBLY excited to begin my EMS career. I have always wanted to do something that makes a difference in peoples lives and that provides variety, and I am a little (okay more than a little LOL) bit of an adrenaline junkie, so EMS seems to be a wonderful fit for me.

If anybody has any advice for me I am ALL ears (well eyes since we are on the internet LOL).

I look forward to chatting with you all in the coming months! :eek:)

Morning, everyone. My name's Morgan, and I'm 19. I just passed my EMT-B course, and I'll be taking the NREMT exam shortly. I'm hoping to work part-time as an EMT (and possibly Medic later on) while I work my way through college towards an M.D.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

G'day to all from the Land Down Under. I'm currently working as a Trainee Paramedic (first year on road) with the Ambulance Service of New South Wales (in Australia). We are a State government run service, providing both emergency and non-emergency transport.
I am really enjoying it out on road and have learnt lots in the very short time I have been working.
Looking forward to reading through the forum and learning even more.

Cheers,
AusMed.

P.S. Link to my service website ASNSW

Family Affair

Guess there's an epidemic of joining this site. Laur68EMT is my sister, which makes b THE B my neice.

Also, I think I proctored emtWacker710 for his practicals. Good to see he passed (tip of the hat and nod to James).

May have to think up an alter-ego screenname now, so I can go incognito when necessary.
