As vacancies come up for medics, they are offered to paramedic qualified EMTs.
There is a process but am told that it does not take long, I'd imagine within a year or two.
With 25% of the suppression academies coming from Station 49, openings should be coming available often.
I am told they need to hire 70.
I believe somewhere around $80k and $110k respectively (L1/L2).
L3 get an additional $10k and a suppression schedule while still being able to pick up OT on the transport units.
The announcement stated, only hiring for the L1 position. Seemed as though starting in the EMT role is the standard. There are many experienced medics working the EMT role.
