Hello all, this is my first time here as a newly-registered member. Thank you for having me - I have so much respect for what you do. I stumbled upon this site by pure luck and am glad I did. Several years ago, I had interest in getting into EMS, but didn't really pursue it. Instead I followed a career path that I loved. Long story short, it didn't work out, and I'm in the process of leaving a job which proved to be difficult and quite unhappy. Late last year, out of the blue, I began to again feel a strong calling to EMS. Ever since that time, I have been unable to push it out of my mind. Things keep happening daily that make me think about it all of the time. I fully realize the potential risks/dangers/stresses of the job, but for me, the good far outweighs the bad. I received my Adult/Pediatric CPR/AED & First Aid certification this month, and am looking to move forward from there. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or resources anyone can offer. I am currently living and working in NYC, and am trying to find out what I can about ride along programs here in the city. Despite thorough online research, I haven't been unable to find anything. (I can understand the reasoning for keeping a ride along program under the radar from the general public.) However, I would be very interested and grateful to have the opportunity to ride along before I pursue training. Thank you again and I look forward to being a part of this community. stardust
