When I was a bum at Frey

Hey y'all, I'm getting my NREMTP in march and looking for colleges to go to in Oregon/Washington and want to move contingent on ability to find employment out there while going to school

Wondering if there are any medics out there who have advice on finding a job/reciprocity from Nys would be greatly appreciated

Matt

Chemeketa CC for paramedic program. WOU has a fire administration program if your going the fire route.

I'm confused, you're getting your national medic license but still need to go to school?

Either way, Central Washington U has a good medic program and while the employment is limited in ellensburg, a lot of people work in yakima to gain good experience. I have a lot of experience living, climbing and working in both those areas if you want more info.

edit to add: i worked in various hospital emergency departments

Unless you get in with fire or AMR you'll most likely be running IFT. Good luck bud!

I grew up in Washington and there are a few places you can get your medic.
Tacoma Community College
Central Washington U
Vancouver

I actually moved to Utah and went through the university of Utah program. I really enjoyed it! Utah has 5 or 6 medic programs and are pumping medics out like crazy.

AMR or rural metro is your best bet as far as getting a job out of school unless you want to work in a hospital setting as a tech or something.

Good luck.

there is also ALS in yakima.

I know wenatchee has a private ambulance service; spokane also uses AMR.

Every county is set up differently, but in Yakima AMR and ALS are all medic/emt cars and respond to 911 calls with fire so they are first responders and not just transfer units like they are used in King county.
