I have the basic patches but I like my mass patch better. I've only seen one person wear their nremt basic patch in mass and she was at a different company. I do like the old disco patch with the rocker. I would still wear a disco patch instead of the mass medic one. A lot of medics have a nremt medic patch despite mass not being a registry state.

My experience has been that they usually they provide your service patch and you provide the other.
i have no idea where any of my patches are. if you work and are required to wear patches they should come sewnonto the shirt.

Here in New Orleans everyone wears national registry patch and service patch but services usually supply patches for uniform.

I think mine is in a box somewhere...I come across it every time I clean my house and just toss it somewhere else. I hate the sparklies that came with the NREMT-P patch...and you can't even read where it says "Paramedic" without being right next to it.

That's a sign you need new glasses, old timer! :p

Contradiction aside, mass medics are that way sometimes... one of the first EMTs in the state was in the paper a few weeks ago, as he is retiring, but was pictured wearing his NR patch, not MA.

Everyone might to hold on to those patches as they will be changing in a few years. There will be no longer a "Basic" or "Intermediate" and definitely not a EMT-Paramedic (yeah!)

Ok, Rid, so no more NR patches? Or are they going to be replaced with something else?

Link? I couldn't find it.

Meh, it's Rids push to leave a 'legacy'-----EMT-B = EMT, EMT-I = EMT-Advanced, and EMT-Paramedic = Paramedic.


You should have got / will get a newsletter from the NREMT in the mail talking about it.


But considering the states still name them what they want... But that's neither here nor there, and will only start another medic vs everyone else war.

Actually, let's really be accurate. It is NOT the Registry it is the NATIONAL STANDARDS. True State's can make up titles all day long as well as excuses; placebo or psuedo Paramedics will still be utilized. The almost ...

Its not Rid's push for anything. Its progress. Something you seem bitter about.

What did you guys do with your NREMT patch? Just wondering, I'm not exactly sure what it's for! haha.

And has anyone purchased any of their additional framing products? The cordova edition looks really cool and my mom is thinking about buying it to hang in the house. Do they send it with a duplicate certificate, or do you have to put yours back in?

Sew it on the front of a thong.....:p

Speaking of patches.. as one that worked with Tx Paramedics, we used to easily " alter" their patches with a few strokes of the pen. . (all in fun, of course! )

Of course, in that case, you would sew it to the back of your thong instead of the front. :p
