Doctor's Ambulance


Haven't seen a thread that was up to date on this company lately. Figured I'd go ahead and revive one.

Just applied there earlier this week, and I've developed quite a love affair with the possibility of getting an interview there. Anyone who works for them, knows anything about them, or knows of any recent changes etc. would be of great assistance. Been hacking the IFT life for a while and I think it's time to move to the next step on the ambulance ladder.

How long is your commute from Oceanside?
Why not an SD co company?

Commute from Oside is anywhere from 30-45 minutes to different sections of their coverage area so the drive isn't too much of an issude. I've been working for Pacific in San Diego for the past year and few months.

How the hell do you drive from Oceanside to Doctors coverage area in 30ish minutes? I live in vista and it would take me over an hour.

I applied online there and got an email asking for me to bring in my certs. Did that and haven't heard since.

But they're the other major player in Orange County next to Care.

I'm close to the freeway and I make the drive regularly.

When you say certs, referring to emt, cpr etc? Or additional non required certs.

45 minutes sounds about right for Oceanside to their headquarters. I could make it from UCI to my parent's house in San Marcos in about an hour... speeding... and using the toll road.
