This is driving me nuts
RseCty posted a topic in General EMS DiscussionSo I recently interviewed with an ambulance service. They like me, and more or less told me that I have the job as soon as my background clears. I already told them what they would find (minor in possession of alcohol, 2008). The hiring manager basically told me it was not a concern, only possibly with insurance. I'm not worried about clearing the background check. What I am concerned about is being insurable. The MIP is not on my driving record, is almost 6 years old, and did not cause me any problems with my private auto insurance. I can't imagine why it would cause me any problems. My driving record consists of a no fault accident (no cars totaled, no injuries, no fatalities, no claims) and a "following too close" moving violation from last November. Given how long I've been driving, I consider that pretty good, and my insurance rates are still relatively low given my age. But I have no idea what the insurance requirements are for ambulance drivers. I figured other EMTs would know more about this kind of thing. Am I uninsurable? I truly apologize for bothering you all with this. This is just such a huge step in my life.
