Hello. I am new here. Found the forum through google while trying to find the California ambulance drivers certificate handbook. Just got my state license a week ago.
Hi, Kevin. Welcome to the forum.Hi Guys, I'm an ex-paramedic and EMT (I worked in EMS for 12 years) before I got sidelined with a spinal injury.
Well, medicine does advance, and what was unfixable years ago has now been able to get fixed surgically, so I'm working on my RN, and intend to take EMT school again so I can challege the paramedic exam and get back in the field . . . and, possibly, work in the hospital.
I found this forum because I want to exchange ideas about EMS, and how it's changed over the past 20 years that I've been out of the field.
Thank you very much.Hi, Kevin. Welcome to the forum.
Then you would be a great fit! It really does keep things fresh. But there are those several hour IFT calls...if you go that route. Longest I ever had to be with a PT was 5 hours on a cross-state transport.“like my patients in small and short-term doses”
Excited to hear about what it's like to be a hovesh!HI. I live in Israel. I was an EMT and EMT Instructor but took a break from EMS to have 6 kids. Now I'm back for about a year and loving it. Just found the forum and thrilled to be able to talk about EMS in English.

I am a 26F (almost 27) who lives in rural Montana. I got my NREMT and state license at the end of March 2021. I was working in our rural health clinic and was anticipating a Jan 2020 EMT course, but then it was canceled due to lack of interest. In Oct 2020 i began working as a EMS driver and then I went through a 3mo course in Jan of 2021. I worked as an EMT part time until last month, when a full time position opened up and I accepted it.
Happy to be here!
