This week on the podcast Jim and Josh talk about a few EMS topics including active shooter training. The topic of having a degree in EMS, higher pay and the pie in the sky wishing of it all came up.
The idea that a college degree trumps your five, ten or more years of experience and how that is going to bring EMS from making $12, $13 or $14 dollars an hour to a pay scale matching the job we do with or without a degree is as always a hot topic.
Sure you won’t get rich in EMS and you shouldn’t expect too. But you should expect to pay your bills as much as you are expected to undergo continuous education, skills assessments, new equipment training, new drugs and protocols. All in the name of superior patient care and competent providers. But no so competent that we can tell people they don’t need an ambulance based on our assessments. Fair?
Heck EMT’s are being expected to perform 12 leads, give drugs, use advanced airways and that list is growing. Yet they have not earned a cent more an hour and most are making at or below minimum wage. Fair?
Spin the wheel as we go round again on this topic and take a listen below
