Becoming a emt with reckless driving for falling asleep at wheel

Recommended Posts

Back in January I was driving late at night after being on a 24 hour guard shift and I fell asleep at the wheel and crashed my car woke up and called 911 right away. I am trying to get into emt school and wondering if I can even one get in and if so can I get a job afterword with this on my record?

any way to go back and get this amended via the courts?  

You should be able to go to emt school and then discuss this with your prospective employers.  Let them know what happened.  

It's all going to depend on the company you apply to.

Most of the time, but don’t quote me, you’re okay with summary offenses. Some higher degree misdemeanor and probably all felonies should be reported, if required. But that shouldn’t keep you from becoming a better person. That won’t fall into a category that would make you a threat to others. 


Hell, it happens in EMS all the time, unfortunately.
