Is the USAF Crash-Rescueman like the Parajumpers or have similar qualities as well as hard training? Just curious.

I'm going to have to assume the crash-rescueman is a firefighter type thing.



The PJs are the USAFs Special Ops group.

Beyond a Paper Route (age 15) and a Beach Maintenance Job (age 17), everything I have done since has been Medical and/or Emergency related: Veterinary Technician, Ambulance, Correctional Facility EMT, Snow Park Manager/EMT Supervisor, and SAR. When I get back to working Ambulance (after an absence of several years), my current plans are to continue to work part time at the Snow Park in the winter for the extra cash, do some Instructor stuff (not necessarily EMS) that I have planned out because I enjoy that, and continue SAR until the day I die since that is what I love. But plans change...

oh word. is that with a FD?

Not usually... SAR is usually Law Enforcement responsibility, especially west of the Mississippi, where SAR Teams are either Sheriff's SAR Teams or Private SAR Teams that are actived by and act under the control of the County Sheriff. Of course, that is at the local level, while any State or Federal Resources are activated based upon the need to support the local resources (if the mission starts out and/or is confined to a local jurisdiction). Missions that start out federally (such as place crashes, etc...) fall under the jurisdiction of the Air Force, the agency having federal resposibilty for SAR in the 48 continental states (excluding major waterways, which the USCG has control over).

Tried getting out of EMS. But, with the recession hitting so hard, the porn industry ain't what it used to be!

Just curious as to what other jobs do you work?
I only do EMS part time / volunteer. My full time job is desktop PC support for the VS Call Center. If I could make the same amount of money in EMS that I do working IT, I'd probably switch over. Until then, I'll keep my full time job.

On my days away from playing paramedic full time.. for some extra cash i do, Paramedical examinations for APPS. Simply put.. you get assigned cases for people applying for life insurance, and you go out and take BP's, Pulses, Weights, and other measurments, Draw blood, and collect urine. You finish up with an exciting lot of questions provided from the insurance company.. Send all of the information into the insurance company for review and blood off to lab for review.. Kind of easy money.
