What can those of us in the department looking to advance a career in EMS/ALS look for, specific to promotional opportunities.
Promotional opportunities for firefighters, EMTs and paramedics exist today and will continue to exist as the department moves forward. Additionally, Firefighter/EMTs and Firefighter/Paramedics, currently and in the future, will have the operational opportunities to ride as minimum on ladder trucks, rescues, engines and transport units. Our service delivery model is now shifting to being able to provide ALS service from all frontline apparatus - fire, rescue and EMS units. Certification is key to being able to ride various apparatus. This service delivery adjustment will provide an equal opportunity for Firefighter/EMTs and Firefighter/Paramedics to gain the experience and certification on all our frontline apparatus.
