Is there still a demand for EMTs in NYC?

Posted · Report post

I think this is the most important thing right now. I'm getting that the EMS is oversaturated with providers that it can be a real challenge to find a job as a basic at all.

Think about the reason why the market is oversaturated. Think of how many programs there are in your area. Each of them puts out (at minimum) one class of new providers out into the job market every semester. That's three times a year. There might be demand for the, but like everywhere else, it might take forever to get hired.

I may be late on this... but have you considered looking elsewhere than just NYC for work? I'm sure you could find work on Long Island, Westchester, or even across the river in NJ.

FDNY is hiring like crazy right now because most of us are getting promoted to firefighters. So they have backfill all the positions

I will never understand how becoming a Fire Truck Driver could ever be considered a promotion. I'm happy to be an Ambulance Driver to the day I die....hopefully I won't be driving when that happens though.

So does the promotional exam give bonus points for writing like a junior high text?

And really, a pay increase does not warrant it being a promotion. They're two completely different jobs, fire and EMS. What's the rationale, besides the pay, for making this kind of move a promotion?

Fantastic

As to the article....

Seems to be a fair bit of apathy on the part of the ambo's, i wonder what the story is there? no one comes to work to do a bad job, stuff like this always has some kind of cultural factor or preconditioning leading up to the mistake. I mean they could have been the perfect crew for the previous ten thousand bullshit jobs they did for the year and they get complacent for one job and it turns to shit on them

Still no gear = no assessment and is bad juju either way.

Time on scene to time of arrival at hospital = 20 mins? sounds reasonable to me

"give people oxygen so they will live" is a bit annoying

I wonder what they were doing for the other 7 minutes on the driveway?

What is the educational comparison for a fire truck driver compared to a paramedic? Every fire college I'm aware of lasts 2 semesters, Sept to June and includes a PCP course.
