What Are Your EMS Benefit Goals?

When you think of benefits of EMS employment. Do you focus on pay, vacation, sick time? Or.. do you think about things like available continuing education, the partner you are with, schedules and how busy an organization is? It’s important to think about all these elements and more when applying for a career in EMS and what is most important is actually what you are looking to get out of your employment. Take a listen as Jim and Josh talk about these elements and maybe even bring up some benefits you may not have thought of.

Better EMS Provider Screening

This week Josh and I discuss better screening methods for EMS providers. Why doesn’t EMS insist on better screening of potential EMT’s and paramedics? With the amount of responsibility we are entrusted with, something a little more than “scouts honor” should be used as background checks. This was an interesting episode with a caller who while new to EMS talks about her experiences with background checks and recent career decisions.
