  •  Our paramedics are volunteer fire company (8+ / 0-)

    associates, only one town has paid fire fighters, so theirs probably get paid.  County sheriffs may have a team of paid paramedics too.  Most are volunteers.  

    It is tough when there are so many trained and not enough openings.  Some  of our fire companies have given up or merged.  The EMS is well worthy of respect, the job is hard on the body and soul.  My folks volunteered until it was always their friends in the van, they basically aged out.

    If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. &
