Primary Care Paramedic.Primary care provider?
Primary Care Paramedic.
@CamilleG can correct me, but my understanding of Canadian medic levels is
Come to think of it, I'm not aware of any AEMT training programs in the state at all. At least for Honolulu EMS its just EMT and Paramedic (well technically Mobile Intensive Care Technician (MICT) but everyone just calls them Paramedics anyway).
- EMR (Roughly the same as ours I believe?)
- PCP, Primary Care Paramedic, closer to an AEMT in the US system than our entry level EMT
- ACP, Advanced Care Paramedic, ALS, Paramedic stuff
- CCP, Critical Care Paramedic
I don't know if AMR (The only private ambulance company here in Honolulu, possibly the state) has any AEMTs, I cannot confirm or deny that. I do know Honolulu EMS is just EMT and Medic only, and Honolulu Fire has no medics (at least no official, working in that capacity as a, Paramedic).
Maui Co and Kauai Counties, AMR is the ambulance provider. Maui Fire and Kauai Fire I believe is like us, BLS first response only.
Hawaii County Fire (Big Island) runs the EMS over there, they have Fire Medics on their ambulances. No idea if AEMT is a thing or not over there. I imagine if so, AEMTs work AMR for Inter-Facility Transfers.
