hey everyone, first off if you reply to this with general knowledge of your area/city it means a lot and thank you... okay so i am a emt-b in california. min wage $10 i run 911... i am in medic school now but do not want to be a medic in california whatsoever. i am not educated on any other state other than CA about ems. does anyone know a state or city that pays ok for either emt or medic that run 911 or work in house with fire? I'm wondering if every state is like california where IF you want to make money you HAVE to be a firefighter as well as a medic/emt. if thats the case i will put everything into fire, if not the case i want to focus on the medical side of fire. I'm 20 years old and have no family in CA so i want to move to where i can work and maybe make more than 10 bucks /hr. i appreciate your feedback very much!!
