  1. Is it worth it? Well I live up in Canada and work as a flight pararmedic in the US (5hr+ drive) So for me...definitely yes!
  2. http://wweek.com/editorial/3428/11006/?SOURCE=RSS IMAGE: Lukas Ketner BY NIGEL JAQUISS | njaquiss at wweek dot com [May 21st, 2008] What happens when a paramedic gets caught using drugs, loses his driver’s license twice, and fails to tell his employer about his violations of company rules? Not much, to judge by the case of American Medical Response employee David Mull, licensed as a paramedic in Oregon since 1994. Mull, 37, of Portland, remains one of about 14 paramedics on AMR’s high-profile “Reach and Treat” team, which handles calls in the Mount Hood Wilderness and the Col
  3. Hey AK, Since I'm joining the Oregon Paramedic Club, you (& one of the 3 original EMT City Hostesses of your choosing) can buy me dinner at McMenamin's RoadHouse :wink: ...what's it been... 3 years now?
  4. I recently completed a one year Paramedicine certificate program in Washington state and now I'm going through the process of getting licenced in Oregon. Once you're NREMT-P'd, Oregon will accept an Associate's degree in something other than Paramedicine. Mine is in Respiratory Therapy. I know of others that have used Arts or Education degrees. I think the point that Oregon is making is to set the Associate's level as the baseline standard of education whether it be EMS, social studies, math etc. Just 2 cents worth :wink:
  5. Marty, Did you recommend CES before the takeover? Grads from the former program have told me the change could only be an improvement! I plan to test at NCTI's Roseville facility in December. Cheers base (NWRTC intern)
  6. As a fellow motorcyclist for almost 30 years (don't understand DD's comment???) my best wishes to Ron and his family.
  7. I was tired of being a Respiratory Therapist in the hospital. Pay and work environment were good, I just got burned out after 16 years. I enjoyed working with my patients, but being contained within those 4 brick walls was driving me nuts. I drove from my 12 hr night shift twice a week to attend a daytime EMT-B class. I had a great instructor and really enjoyed the class. Then took CCEMTP, Neonatal-Pediatric Specialist cert and all the alphabet soup courses. I interviewed and landed a part time flight RT position about a 4 hr drive from my home. I commute out there twice a month and live
  8. Welcome BASE brother and fellow EMT.... :wink: base587
  9. Hi nremtp, I'm a British and Canadian citizen living in the US as a permanent resident. I would contact potential employers directly to see if they understand what is involved in sponsoring you. It may be more of a challenge to them dealing with the USCIS than just $$$ to land you a work visa. I live in the Pacific Northwest and love it here. America is a great country to live in if you have drive and motivation. Good luck on your move. base
  10. Akroeze, You may have a left anterior hemiblock (blockage of the anterior fascicle of your left bundle). There is evidence of left axis deviation and a Q wave in L1 and a prominent S in L3. You need a proper 12 lead to be truely diagnostic. (Make sure the limb leads are truely on your limbs, and not just L & R upper chest and L flank) I'm no expert by any means, but most likely you'll live :wink:
  11. His hair didn't look any different at District 5 PCEP this past Tuesday... :wink:
  12. Cheers....McLennan, AB, population 800! (4 hr drive north of Edmonton)
  13. Besides the seat belts....inexperienced teenage drivers are easily distracted, especially among a group of friends. Isn't there a state that restricts teen drivers from having other adolescent passengers in their vehicle?
  14. Off duty, I pack around 5 joules.....in my fist :wink:
