EMS Shortage Or Short On Pay?

After seeing several articles and social media discussions on the claims about EMS provider shortage. Jim and Josh jump on and ask the question “Is it truly a shortage of providers?” or maybe the continued low pay of EMS professionals is forcing qualified professionals who love the job to go into other fields with higher pay.

You can promote higher education as the solution till you’re blue in the face but no one is waiting around for agencies to pay higher for college degrees when that degree can pay the bills now someplace else.

Take a listen as they are also joined by a caller during the show.
