Duties involve providing emergency care and transport to the sick and injured, restocking equipment and supplies as needed, ensuring due regard while operating a ambulance at various speeds and weather, preparing and submitting patient care reports.
Change the words any way you see fit as it is not really that difficult. Seems funny that you can not describe your job duties with words....LOL.

GA does not recognize basics...if one wishes to work 911 emergencies, they have to be intermediate or higher. So kudos to at least advancing to a level to enter EMS instead of sitting around as a basic and complaining.
Sorry rookie, but the humor I found is at your expense and many people today, who have no clue how to write resumes. I am not picking on you, just explaining what I found funny. It is more sad than funny, but I see it time after time. I am not that old, yet I can not fathom what people are learning or rather NOT learning in high schools today. We simply are not preparing ourselves to enter the world and succeed.
A job description should be so simple. I believe it might be the same info that was in the job description for which you applied, albeit in much more detail, but there nonetheless. Of course you probably did not read your job description when you applied, because we all know what an EMT knows or does...right?

I stand corrected AK, and to the OP my apologies. After some review of the GA codes I now know that the basic level in GA is the EMT-I, and I do hope that your plan is to advance in your career choice. I still feel that the EMT-I level is a waste of every ones time when you choose to enter in to the field and stop at this level. EMT-I in most areas is a "in between" level that is misused by people who want to be medics but don't want to go through all the education. Obviously that last statement is incorrect in GA, and I thank you AK for pushing me to educate myself a little this am and learn a new "thing" today.
Getting back to the resume, using term such as general EMT(I) duties in my opinion is something to stay away from because it makes you look to lazy to expand on your job description. So definitely point out specifics. Also the above listed code should give you some help defining your certification

[list]That's all you need to say. Anything more is presumptuous, and risks making you sound like a tool. Besides, if it's an EMS employer reading your resume, they know what your job was.

As I stated previously I truly hope you plan on expanding your education within your career choice. There is so much more out there, and yes I can't stand for any one making the EMT-I level a career. EMT-I as a career choice is in my opinion is just simply a lazy way to boss EMTs around, and be the "big man in the truck". I understand if it is a "stepping stone" on your way to furthering your education much like the EMT would be for a serious EMS provider, but to make it your career of choice is just plain lazy. If you were offended by any of my comments, I'd suggest picking up the phone and making inquiries about the next medic class.

Even though working for not much more than minimum wage as an ambulance driver is a really, really bad way to try to earn money for ANY kind of school, it's a little premature to accuse her of not furthering her education.
