Which EMS “P” Are You?

Medic partnersWhere do you put yourself working in EMS? I think it can come down to three key self titles.

Provider – the person that does the job, does it well and looks for that paycheck, the job security.

Professional – still does a great a job, expects the paycheck but also goes above the basics. Seeks out training, knowledge and interaction with other EMS folks.

Evangelist – beating the drum of all that is EMS. Absorbing as much education as you can, taking part in out of work activities. Spreading the good word of EMS where ever you go.

So where do you fit in? Maybe you are a little of all three.

Defining An EMS Professional

What makes an EMS professional? It is your uniform, education or attitude? Is it defined by your skills or your last exam score? What about paid vs. volunteer? Can there be a definite answer or is it all perception? How do you describe what an EMS Professional is?
