I am a firefighter/emt-b in South Dakota. Separate services. Our fire dept is all volunteer and our EMS service is run by the hospital. We volunteer to be on ambulance call but get paid for the runs or transports we respond to.

I'm an EMT in the FDNY EMS. We have Engine Company Certified First Responders-Defib, but don't have cross-trained Firefighter EMTs or Firefighter Paramedics, or EMTs or Paramedics who fight fires. Just the way it seems to be working.

PS: If a firefighter is an EMT or Paramedic outside of the FDNY, they don't utilize the skills on the job for the FDNY. At the same time, if an EMT or Paramedic is trained as a Firefighter outside of FDNY, they also can not use their skills as a firefighter on the job for FDNY.

I am an EMT-B for a volunteer service with a little less than 2 years in...I used to work full time on a transport truck but financial obligations require me to going back to night shift Security Officer/EMT at my hospital. I also volunteer in an EMT capacity for a half dozen entities in a first response role.
