    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.

    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...

    Transferring to CARE/McCormick

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

    Transferring to CARE/McCormick

    That’s an idea, I also considered going South End, I hear it’s generally a better vibe out that way.

    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...

    Coronavirus Discussion Thread

    Oh that’s interesting. My stomach has been kinda weird for a while but I definitely noticed stomach pain and all that much more within the last week or so. Is it true that there are different “strains” of Covid? Because I’ve had friends be positive with a more chest related illness(SOB, chest...

    Coronavirus Discussion Thread

    Well, I tested positive a few days ago. My division supe said I was the third one that day calling with the same story I feel fine, my taste and smell disappeared so that’s when I made the call. But I feel completely fine other than that, and the doc says I’m towards the ending of the...

    Death of Elijah McClain

    Hello everyone, I had a question and wanted to bring this to everyone’s attention, for those who haven’t followed. Here is a snippet from the Wikipedia article that you can find here. “The three police officers who were involved in the incident, said that their body cameras were knocked off...

    Wildland EMT/Crew EMT

    That is understandable. I bought the NOLS Wilderness EMS module textbook and have been just brushing up, it’s a good read. Just a rookie who also happens to have my EMT cert. First season, and only a year of experience working on a rig, but I just want to be as prepared and well versed as I...

    Wildland EMT/Crew EMT

    Hey guys, so I’ve started working on a Wildland Type II crew and there are a few EMT’s here but I am the only one currently working and using my skills. I really enjoy learning about austere medicine and prolonged field care. How do I prepare best to serve as a crew EMT on a fire? Is getting a...
