    Default More questions...

    Hey,
    I've looked over their website and I have a few questions...

    As far as medics go, what is the situation as far as getting on an engine vs. medic?

    It looks like all engines have at least one medic, how does staffing work?

    I see that San Diego Medical Services Enterprise does a lot of the EMS down there and has some kind of partnership with the dept. Do they do all of the transports?

    All right thanks for taking the time to read/answer.

    So, a CPAT is not required when applying? If you have a CPAT, you can sign a waiver to not take San Diego's PAT?

    I hope I get a opportunity to take their exam, I would like to visit San Diego.

    Default Hope this helps...

    San Diego runs 4 man paramedic assessment engines, using a captain, an engineer, a firefighter and a firefighter/medic. The ambulances are run through a partnership with Rural Metro. Ambulances housed in stations (24 hour cars) are run with either 2 firefighter/medics, or one firefighter and one firefighter/medic. Some ambulances are classified as "rescues" due to extra equipment and run a firefighter/medic and a Captain/medic.

    Other ambulances are day cars or roaming cars and they are staffed by Rural Metro employees or single function San Diego city employees who are paramedics and EMT-Basics.

    There are also BLS ambulances run with rural metro EMT-Basics.

    San Diego Medical Service Enterprise is the partnership between Rural Metro and San Diego City Fire.

    As a firefighter/medic you will spend most time on ambulance but get to rotate to engine too,

    OCfire, I may be wrong but aren't all the ambo's (except the rescues) staffed with rural metro employees? I worked for rural metro for a short time as an EMT-B and I don't remember any firefighters being on the ambo's, even the 24hr ones, unless they were working an overtime gig. It's been a while so I'm not sure....

    Default EMT Certification.

    Do you have to have EMT certification to take the SDFD test?
