Pocono's EMS.


Recommended Posts

After slaving away in NYC EMS for the past few year, I've finally gathered up enough money and more importantly enough courage to purchase a house. Despising NYC, and most of its occupants has me buying a house in Cresco, PA. The short term plan is to commute once a week work 3 12 hr shifts in NYC and commute back, long term plan will be to secure employment in PA. I have already applied for and received reciprocity. Are there any specific agencies I should be applying to or avoiding? What exactly is 'medical command'?

And anything else that you feel I should know about EMS in the Pocono's ?

Medical command is simply PA's way of saying the medical director of the squad in question has signed off on the employee allowing him/her to practice. This is generally done, depending on the squad, after a "brief" orientation period.

Can't help you with employers. Good luck with your move.
