Wondering if anyone can help answer this question. I obtained a dwai in nys i blew 0.07 under the legal limit. It’s labeled as a traffic infraction. I spoke with nys dept of health & im fully cleared to continue practicing as an emt. Curious as to if this bars me from working for a ems agency. I had plans on going to medic school but unsure if i would even be hired by a company . Any help or insight to this would be greatly appreciated.

as a regulatory thing, probably not (as you found out). however, each ems agency is different, so you might want to direct your question to agencies you want to work for.

You would have to speak with the agency that you wish to work for. Full disclosure is always the best practice.
