Well I am in my second month of my EMT-B class and I'm loving it so far. I can't wait for clinical's to start in April. I feel like an old man in class though with all these 21 year olds lol.. Here is the plan.... Graduate EMT-B and apply to work for the city of Detroit (I want the 911 exp and they are hiring EMT-B's.) 3 Months after I graduate, the Paramedic class starts and I work towards that goal. I continue to work EMS in Detroit while in school and when I graduate I figure out where I want to go after that. Hell I might decide I like Detroit and all the excitement it has to offer. I've been working in Detroit as a Repo agent for the past few years and I know the in's and out's of the city and I'm in the streets, so I have a good idea of what to expect. I have always had to do something that involved a bit of excitement and can not be the same day in day out. I live in one of the worst states in the country economically and this is one field that isn't AS effected by the downturn. The the biggest reason is I am sick of being an ass to fill a seat in a job that anyone could do. I want to hold my head up high and when someone asks what I do, I can say what I AM... I've been on the boards for years but wanted to introduce myself to this crowd Any advice would be great and anybody that works EMS in S.E. Michigan let me know.. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
