New to the world of EMS

Recommended Posts

I'm a high school student in NC, and working on an associates degree before I graduate high school. I have been interested in EMS since the beginning of my freshman year. I'm working with the explorers program at a station near me and was able to do a ride with paramedics. This is definitely the career I would like. Anyone have any advice for a student wanting to go into EMS?

Start with an EMT basic class and go on more ride-alongs. I took first responder and EMT-B when I was in High School and really loved the challenge which got me to where I am now. But I will say this, you get out of it what you put into it. We all start somewhere.

Best of luck
