Hey folks, can't remember if I introduced myself or not..... prior guard 68W, current TECC/TCCC instructor. Full time gig is a trooper/flight paramedic in my agencies aviation command. NRP/CCEMTP and the associated alphabet certs. Currently studying for FP-C.
Emt b. Working for a private company in an urban area. We do a healthy mix of emergency contracts and inter facility transports. I’ll be going for medic after I’m finished with school and possibly an rn bridge program after that.
25 years of EMS experience in total. 21 year Paramedic both state and national registry, the vast majority of which has been spent as a career firefighter paramedic. Private ambo Paramedic for a couple years as well as a ER tech for 2. 4 years as an EMT basic prior to that. SWAT medic with a regional interagency team for two years. TECC, PHTLS, PALs, ACLS. I teach a portion of our annual active violent event training at work every year and am a EMS FTO with my current agency.
EMT-Basic, roughly one year of experience. First nine months were on a busy reservation service, about twenty runs per 40/48 hour shift. Little trauma, but some truly astonishing medical calls. Changed fields for a bit and came back to EMS. Currently at a horribly slow rural service. Will probably start an EMT-A training program soon.
