Most people in EMS work more than one job. So what's yours? and if EMS is your part time job, what is your full time job>

How you make that skrilla then?
Full time EMS for rural/suburban service.
PRN at AMR, a super rural service, and a combo fire department with an ambulance. Also teach EMS classes of a hospital network and community college.

I'd give up all the PRN stuff except the fire job (can't beat working with friends and breaking stuff) for a non-EMS side hustle that paid. Not sure what is though...

Just got back into IFT PRN. Training pay and relocation killed me the last 4 months.

My part-time gig is school.

The GI bill pays you a housing stipend. We use that to send my wife to school as well. That extra money looks good in the account for a few minutes each month.

FT: Firefighter

PT: delivering for Uber Eats. Biggest pro is that it's super flexible, go on or offline whenever I feel like, so signing up in advance for shifts, no need for specific uniform. Downside is pay sucks, extra gas and wear/tear/maintenance, 1099 status means I deal with taxes myself. It really is a side gig used almost exclusively for near immediate cash infusions to cover the bills (racked up some extra credit and loan debts from my recent move) until I can clear probation and get the pay raise that comes with it lol.

I'm still technically in the Army Reserves, but I haven't drilled in nearly a year since before I moved for the fire job and it's academy. I will not be drilling again before my ETS date next month and I'm officially out of the Army, I just need to fly back to CA, grab my gear from my parents house (where I was living before) and turn it all in, sign some forms and I'm done. Even though I highly doubt this last year will count towards retirement, that should still leave 10 years Time In Service, 9 at the worst, so I'm heavily contemplating re-enlisting into the Guard or Reserves again once I'm off probation. Considering reclassify to Infantry (the USAR's only Infantry unit is based here) while doing school part time to get an associate's and ultimately re-classing again, going to Warrant Officer school to become a pilot, though that plan is rather highly fluid lol

If I do go back to school, I've heard there's a degree pathway for Paramedic here so that'd probably be my primary option. I can't work for our third service C&C EMS Agency (civil service rules) but I could work part time for AMR which is the only private company on the island and thus gets all the IFTs, CCTs, and does backup 911 for EMS Agency. There's aparently more than a few FFs in our dept who had EMT or PM licenses and maintain them and work part time for AMR so I'm figuring that's a likely future option.

So in summary, currently full time Firefighter, part time Uber driver, with plans to re-enlist into either the Army National Guard or Army Reserves while getting my Paramedic license and working part time for our private company provider.
