  • Fireline paramedic questions

    I apologize if this has already been discussed and for my total naivety on the subject. Im a NR paramedic in CO with my s130/190. I am interested in working as a single resource arduous FEMP ( "fire line" paramedic) during this summers wild land season while I search for career FF/PM positions. I am not exactly sure how to go about doing this? I have seen several companies outside of colorado that provide this service, but seem to take a very significant cut from the AD-J pay rate that a single resource Fire line paramedic commands. My questions are... has anyone on this board performed this roll yet? Would I need to start my own company and find my own medical director? How do I go about making myself a single resource ? Thank you so much for your time!

    You'll mostly find fire line medics or emt's when type 1 or 2 IMT's are assigned to fires.. In that case you're going to need to be familiar with the team, all the medics and Emt's I've met we're through an Agency whether that's a county in the area or fed agency. Also if you did start your own company and had your own med director he would need to be licensed in all the states you're planning on working...

    This is just what I've seen, try searching wildlandfire.com the people there can probably help you a little more..

      There are some companies that supply line EMTs and EMT-Ps, but most come from local agencies. I don't know if it was finalized or not but line EMT / EMT-P was going to require FFT1, so you would have to be an experienced firefighter.

      Since the position is kind of a loner position, the push was to require they have a fair bit of experience so they could help watch out for themselves if things got ugly.

        That's a great idea, I hope that happens. I've seen some pretty questionable stuff done by medics and EMT's.. I've noticed they get lost a lot too..
