    So Cal AMR Paramedic Jobs

    It’s definitely been better, I’m coming up on 2 1/2 years so my perspective is still pretty new but I’d be happy to discuss it. Shoot me a DM

    Pennsylvania EMS

    There's a possibility I might be moving to PA, but I know almost nothing about their EMS system. Was curious what any PA people thought about their companies and the system as a whole. I'll be locating to the Philadelphia area, but I'm really open to anything that seems like a good opportunity.

    AMR cant staff, fire/ sheriff transport

    Our leadership doesn’t seem to mind ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    AMR cant staff, fire/ sheriff transport

    All AMR divisions in the SoCal area are maxed out. SD is lost, and Riv is probably not far behind tbh.

    SoCal AMR Medics

    I’m an EMT for AMR Riv, I make above $18 and I’ve only been here for >3 years. Personally I like jumping around and picking up shifts in different areas, MoVal can be fun. Management and dispatch can really get your burnt out, but I just learned to live with it. i know everyone says grass is...

    This is also something I’ve considered. Maybe I’m getting burnt out too quickly.

    Transferring to CARE/McCormick

    Transferring to CARE/McCormick

    To add to this, dispatch does seem to play favorites with who they like or don’t like/don’t know. Not to mention getting a call dropped on you 30 mins before EOS, that’s a BLS preschedule with other units posted elsewhere. Yeah, late calls are the nature of the job, but every night? Maybe I’m...

    Transferring to CARE/McCormick

    Is someone who works/worked at Care/McCormick willing to let me ask them a few questions about their day to day, etc? Coming from AMR Riverside, it’s a good operation with good pay( best in the region for my EMT exp level), I just am really tired of dealing with crappy management and equal...

    Regarding EMT-B schooling and it’s relation to real world medicine

    That makes a ton of sense, I never really considered the issue of National standards vs individual State, County, and Agency needs. I wonder where this is education will go in the next 5, 10, or 20 years. I’m sure there are plans for streamlining this, but I can definitely understand the...

    Regarding EMT-B schooling and it’s relation to real world medicine

    I’ve been thinking about this ever since I got hired, and I want to ask what you all think. During EMT school I learned things , and didn’t learn things, that were vastly different than what I encountered while on shift. I had to practically relearn and unlearn information during FTO. With...
