    Any EMT/I/P's in here?

    Been a paramedic since 2001 before I switched over to law enforcement in 2007. I miss it at times.. I'm still certified but haven't done any EMS work since..

    I'm a firefighter/paramedic.

    Why the switch to law enforcement?

    Honestly a career change and nothing more. All of my friends are in LE. I said what the heck and made it through.

    I am a FF/Paramedic assigned to our hazardous materials medic unit. I provide ALS support for both our HazMat/CBRNE Strike Teams as well as our Bomb Squad which is a subset of our SWAT Team.

    I am a full time cop with additional duties with firearms, both instructor and armorer. I am also an EMT-B. In my area I can perform pre-ambulance care at an EMT level, once the rig arrives they take over. It works out nice, I can keep up on my skills, get free equipment and training, and good experience. Also on the range either teaching or as a student I have my EMT bag and am usually a part of the "emergency plan." I am glad to have the skills, hopefully I won't have to use them to save a partner's life, but if called to I am equipped and ready.

    My last day of service as a paramedic was in 1982.

    And no, we were not using leeches then.

    Been a medic since 93 but changed to LE in 98. I have kept up my certification but like others here have not been too active over the last couple years. I'm not sure what I will do next year for the next re-cert. I don't think I can give it up, but theres a lot of CE to get done.

    Darn, you beat me to it.

    I bet you were Johnny and Roy's FTO though, huh.

    I'm due for re-cert in October of this year. I guess I need to get off my ass and start taking CE course online.
