My employer requires the usual FEMA NIMS certs, plus a hazmat cert to be able to deploy and do vaccinations. I don't understand how a private company can skirt the Federal requirements.
Fortunately, I have gone ahead and said, "thanks, but no thanks for now" to them.
Seems like they are trying to get a batch of people into their network without having to get the required items required for FEMA. You would think they would do it the other way around but what do I know, seems strange. I don't think I would want to work for a group that I don't know when I'm going to get the call for a job and then have such a short window of time to get the req's complete. What if I get a job notice that I could accept but don't have the time on that specific date to get all that stuff done.
I'd be skeptical of this group.
I received an email recently directly from a private company to do FEMA covid vaccinations. Supposedly they will offer me jobs within 50 miles of where I live. But there are some odd requirements. They only want copies of all of my certs and my DL. No actual job application.
I did finally find out that once they accept you, they notify you of a position by text. You have two hours to respond and accept it. After doing that, you have 12 hours to complete a slew of online requirements like FEMA paperwork, classes, I-9 form, and finally their application form to work for them.
The software company we are using is working on developing a way for us to have an APP that would be just for EMT City. It would not be a 3rd party like TapaTalk. This would not be a mobile web version of the site, but an app like Facebook or Twitter.
It is not secret that our site is not as active as it used to be. Would you be more likely to participate on EMT City if there was an app version?
