    EMS major flaw is not enough medic units, 911 abuse, as in any major city.
    EMS is in the process of being reorganized.

    You are assigned suppression out of the academy (unless you request EMS), you are detailed as needed to the Medic, at most 4 consecutive shifts (1 trick)

    This is a new position that does not require ALS, I have not seen a salary yet.

    Shift: 2- 10hr days , 2 - 14hr nights = (1 trick) 4 days off, vacation option every 6th
    so you only work suppression, no ems to begin?
    and is it 4 days straight? bmore county has that schedule - 4 on, 4 off.
    If you select ems, is it one or the other? or can you switch back and forth?

    as it is posted on the city website. looks like you do have to pickup and return application in person. so that does let those out that live out of state or a good ways away. unless you can afford a flight or a drive just to turn in your application, plus the other many steps in the process that you would have to return for.

    Does anyone know the rules for someone who is active duty military and wants to apply, I can't guarantee that I would be able to make it down for all portions of the hiring? I am stationed in NJ. Also, do EMT-B/FF ride in the medic units or are those Paramedics, how often are you rotated through the ambulance from suppression? Thank you for any info.

    Cool

    well, the rumors were confirmed today. I just got back from picking up my application. I had to go to three different stations because the first 2 either wouldnt answer the door or were out on calls. lol. but after much driving around, I found the 3rd one (of 40 something stations). They hooked me up with it right there on the spot.

    They give preference to residents of Baltimore and to veterans. The salary is $33,476 to $53,497. Applications have to be dropped off at the War Memorial Building by next Friday at 7pm.

    The big difference I see is that they have 5 CPAT sessions which are mandatory unless you go to the 1st one and sign a waiver.

    Also, I didn't realize this, but they have a notice in the application that it is illegal in MD to use a polygraph/lie detector. I didnt know that. Is this a new law?

    Anyways, good luck to everyone.

    the guys at the station couldn't (or wouldnt???) give me any details. The applications says you will be put on an eligible list for 2 years.

    It says you go through 1)written test, 2)interview, 3)CPAT. Then you get on the list. "as the need arises, you will be called to finish the hiring process - drug screen & physical exam" so I'm not sure what their intentions are right now.

    Does Baltimore give preference or extra pay to those with ALS?

    Question

    Why does Baltimore have 5 Cpat sessions? I've never heard of that.

    I was wondering the same things. That would be the first that I have heard of having to attend 5 CPAT sessions. Anyone with any info in regards to this?

    so the application must be picked up in person but how about retuning, can it be mailed or does that need to be hand delivered too?

    I was in Baltimore today. Turned in my application. There were 5-6 other people there filling out applications as well. Seems like there will be a lot of people applying, but I guess that isn't different from any other test. I visited a couple stations and they were all very polite and showed me and my friends around.

    If you're planning on filling out the application down there it would be easiest just to go straight to the War Memorial Building at 101 N. Gay Street as they have them there. You'll need driver's license info, fire and/or ems certs if you have them (bring copies), information from current employer and previous employer including address, phone number, supervisor, etc. I think that's pretty much it. It's only a two page application. Also bring $30 cash for the application fee if you don't live in the city because they'll send you across the street to city hall to pay it after you turn in your application. There's a parking garage right next to the War Memorial Building where you can park for $4.

    The written exam is August 22. After that there will be an interview. After the interview is the CPAT orientation, mentorship sessions which will last at least 8 weeks, two CPAT practice sessions and then the actual CPAT. After the CPAT is the background investigation and the medical exam is the last step.
