I'm an EMT Student trying to decide what path to follow. I know for a fact that I want to do EMS, and nothing else, but the best paying jobs in my area are for FF/EMT-P. There are ambulance districts around me, but pretty much all but one pays less than $15 an hour. I really don't have any desire to go putting on turnout gear and climbing up ladders, but I have heard that many firefighters are on the ambulance majority, if not all the time. I wouldn't even mind doing medical calls on the fire truck and extrications. The FD jobs are very hard to get, but is it worth it? I don't want to be stuck on a fire truck all of the time.. Should I just stick to EMS? Thanks, JT
I was a volunteer Firefighter in Georgia back in the 90's and loved it. Started running rescue calls as a First Responder. Missed out on EMT class back then, but have recently finished class in Shelby, NC. Nervous about NC state test and then, to sit for NREMT. Really would like to do that, my career hit a dead end and now I want to start something new from something old I enjoyed. Middle aged but still in shape and want to do more than punch register buttons or type and answer phones. I'm also a photographer, and hope to upload some cool apparatus pictures.
