The number of positions available in the field is projected to increase 13% by 2017, from 238,658 jobs to 268,892. But, remember — workers have to like blood.
I know some people who work EMS,
its certainly hard job and they dont get paid as much;
the full time Firefighters make more, sometimes quite well in fact,
why they get so many applicants each year.. kwaps get more as well
but EMS aside the pay, you really have to deal with some bad shit at times
and may not be worth to make it a career..?
