Hi guys/gals, So I was wondering what the most common shifts for private ambulance services are. I know some do twelves, and even 24s. How do you learn to sleep? I have sleep problems and it is the only part of the job that worries me. I have just tried to readjust my sleep clock as I seem to revert back to sleeping 4:00 to 10:00 a.m. if I permit myself to. And to make things worse, my job this winter (part-time) will be starting at noon. It has been a struggle my whole adult life, but more when my employment is screwy or irregular. I am finally back on a normal schedule, but I am wondering how the ambulance job will affect my sleep when I get one and how more seasoned EMTs such as yourselves handle it. Thanks.
