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..
