Just for clarification: do you want EMTs, or paramedics? I ask because the first half of your posting says EMTs, while the requirements mandate a paramedic certification.

And this is to work as a medical worker in a correctional facility, correct? Do you work with a nurse, under a doctor, etc, or is it just you?

This site is a good start...there are a ton of Facebook Paramedic Job groups or just EMS pages in general...a post or two there and you may be flooded with more CVs than you can handle.

A favorite past time for the lowly paid paramedic looking for a new job whilst posted on a street corner in between their next Code 3 chronic back pain call.
