Question! One of my skills steps is to preoxygenate the patient by ventilating the patient with 100% O2 via BVM forn2-3 mins! What does that mean? Get there saturations to 100%? Or place BVM on high flow?
Aloha Jim! Would you know what the work schedule is like for a City & County Honolulu EMT?
Hey, I know City&County EMS is on 12 hour shifts, all either noon to midnight, or midnight to noon. Not sure what their weekly schedule is like. I wanna say its something like 2 on, 2off 2 on, 4 off or something like that, but I don't know for sure.
Thank you Jim! I was just accepted into KCC’s EMT program and was so excited to hear the good news! The interview to get into the program is the same as the Fire Department :) I hope to see you on the road someday or in the Department coming in as a recruit!
Hi ExpatMedic0. I'm new to EMTLife, I tried to find a way to massage/email you directly. Do you know how has the flight contract with Saudi Red Crescent? I know PHI had it in the past. Now it seems to be mostly South Africans working on the flight side for SRCA. Thank you. Erik
Hey Erik, It's been a decade since I worked there, I'm not sure who has the contract currently. In the past Alpha star aviation, Abu Dhabi Aviation, PHI all had different contracts with SRCA HEMS. There have also been periods when the SRCA has contracted with no one, hires directly. Not sure what the current status is. If you find out feel free to let me know
Hello Sir, Aside from the classroom textbook. Are there any other study guide/practice exams you can recommend for NREMT-B?
I'm looking for some information regarding the Mayo Clinic ambulance. Do you have the time to chat about a few things?
MedStar is a good place to start at any level. If not there, CHRISTUS out in Longview, UT Health EMS, Acadian or any of the local 911 services are good, then AMR (low pay).
I live in Dallas, not sure if I'd want to make the drive out to Longview haha. It's not as easy for me to uproot and go. I have a wife and son as well. But I was looking into MedStar or AMR Farmers Branch, but AMR has a pretty crappy pay scale.
All non-fire EMT jobs do.
so i've read. I'll probably look at joining the fire academy in the near future. Hopefully get hired on to a FD somewhere.
Hey! So I'm looking at obtaining my EMT-B in August, you know if MedStar FW is a good company to try with or should I look at a smaller company.
Hello Jim,
I have an oral interview for McCormick on Monday. Anything in specific you could think of that I might need to know? (I've already taken the written/trauma scenario). Also, How likely is it that McCormick will hire someone straight out of their EMT class?
Hey sorry for the late reply, don't really check these profile messages... anyways, looking at the date stamp I'm sure you already did the interview, hopefully you passed! But otherwise the interview is fairly standard stuff from what I remember (it has been like 3-1/2 years now)
While we are confident that these will comply with all regulatory requirements, it is very important for our team to obtain validation from Emergency Responders that will use our systems on a daily basis. Would you be interested in participating in a focus group session?
Hello Tigger, First of all I will like to congratulate you on all your experience and for taking the time to actively share your knowledge on this website. Our Research and Development team is in the process of designing several elements in an Ambulance Setting.
Finished EMT Course and passed NREMT. Currently going through the hiring process at the local ambulance company and helping out with the new EMT class as an extra hand, which is nice because it keeps the information fresh and keeps me in contact with the instructors.
good morning Tigger. I just started my EMT training back in March, i have a big test tomorrow. and i have few questions. will you be able to help me?
I am looking for funding to purchase a power cot. I have tried our state and local sources without any luck. Can you help find links to funding for such an item
