Ours is a volunteer service, with one full-time EMT to provide day shift coverage. We average 150 calls per year, and do not make a profit. I did a cost study, and EVERY time we opened our doors last year, it cost us over $700.00. With the increase in fuel and supplies, it will only go up this year per projections.

I used to be volunteer... Then I was paid... Now I'm a supervisor for a transport company.

Hopefully I will be changing that soon... I miss the adrenaline rush :!: :!:

I just need to find a position that won't be a pay cut!! I can't afford another one! :!: :evil:
